Supply Airports, Shopping Centres and Congested Urban Areas
In a typical multi-retailer environment, such as an airport, shopping centre or high street, inbound goods are delivered by lots of suppliers to each store, often in small quantities. This means considerable inefficiency and duplication of effort, as well as large amounts of avoidable congestion, noise, pollution and inconvenience to the local population. Worse, key logistics processes are performed by retailers and landlords, who are distracted from their core business activities.
DHL’s solution is an environmentally focused consolidation platform, strategically located close to the airport, shopping centre or town centre. All deliveries are routed via the consolidation platform, reducing inbound delivery vehicles by over 70%, leaving retailers, airport authorities and landlords free to focus on what they do best.
