DHL expands Indonesia operations

Reading Time: 2 minutes

dhl_freightGlobal logistics solutions provider DHL Supply Chains has announced that it will be undergoing a massive $52.3-million expansion plan in Indonesia over the next few years, further strengthening its strong position in ASEAN’s largest economy.

Its transport fleets, the legs of its logistics system, will double from its current 370 vehicles by 2015.

Furthermore, the Germany-based company, a division of Deutsche Post DHL, plans to hire 70 per cent more employees from its current staff of 2,250, as well as add 60 per cent warehouse space to its network.

Supporting this burgeoning staff and equipment, the expansion programme will revolve around a new 17,000-square-meter warehouse in Cimanggis, Depok, West Java, Oscar de Bok, the CEO for South and Southeast Asia said in the Jakarta Globe. The storage facility is the third built-to-suit warehouse in the company, and aims to tackle rising demand in the fast-moving consumer goods industry.

“Indonesia is a key focus for us. Industry experts estimate average growth this year in Indonesia will be a regional high of 6.3 percent and within the supply chain industry, we actually expect to see double-digit growth here. This is why we are proactively investing to ensure we have the right infrastructure and people to support this,” de Bok was quoted as saying in a company statement.

DHL Supply Chain already operates a large warehouse in Cimanggis, which redistributes to 300 other distributors and four factories in the area. This warehouse and others in the company’s portfolio are expected to increasingly handle consumer goods in the automotive, high-tech and retails sectors.

“Part of our strategy to strengthen customer footprint in Indonesia is to continue to expand our services in the rapidly growing industries in Indonesia, such as the consumer, retail, automotive, energy and technology sectors. We have developed core expertise in these areas in our global network and have replicated these best practices for local execution,” Abdul Rahim Tahir, DHL Supply Chain Indonesia’s managing director, said in the Jakarta Globe.

DHL Supply Chain first began operations in Indonesia in 2003.
