A company statement quoted DHL Global Forwarding CEO (South Asia) Thomas Tieber, who was commenting on the move:
“DHL and its heritage organisations have shared a long and fruitful association with the Lemuir Group for over 30 years through agency and joint ventures.”
This acquisition will help the company to further cement its strong position in India when it comes to international freight forwarding, customs brokerage services and supply chain management.
DHL has positioned itself to expand its global forwarding services in the freight market on this subcontinent. In fact, the company has already made steps to grow its freight network here, with a planned increase in the amount of retail centres it operates from. It hopes to raise the number from 400 to a thousand within five years.
