David Cameron has visited DHL’s UK headquarters in Feltham in an effort to find out more about international logistics. He discussed imports and exports and too, questions from staff.Speaking about his experience, he said:
“It was great to meet people from the Feltham area and see first-hand the essential role DHL Express plays both in the local area and globally. Global export markets should be the next frontier for all fledgling enterprises producing great British products. That’s why I’m here today to understand the vital role logistics plays in facilitating international trade and to better understand the great work DHL Express has been doing to encourage UK SMEs to sell their wares to the world.”
The question and answer session was attended by around 250 staff and he was asked about the mooted high speed rail link between London and northern England as well as the EU heads of government summit in Brussels.
Also discussed was the impact of high fuel prices. Fuel costs of course have a huge impact on courier companies as their business is all about transportation. Cameron chose to emphasise the fact the nation is becoming less dependent on fossil fuels.
