DHL to Spend $52.5m on Indonesia Positioning

DHL Supply Chain will invest $52.5m over the next few years to further strengthen its position in Indonesia. By 2015, the company plans to increase its transportation fleet by over 100 percent up from its fleet of 370 vehicles at present and grow its staff strength by over 70 percent from its current base of some 2,250 employees.

It will also add 60 percent more warehouse space to enhance its network of 164 warehouses it currently operates.

"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," said Oscar de Bok, DHL supply chain chief executive for Southeast Asia said.

DHL Supply Chain unveiled the first of these investments, a new 17,000-square-meter-warehouse in Cimanggis built to world class standards with state of the art features customized to suit customers' specific requirements. The warehouse has enough docks to accommodate 176 containers per day or 64,240 per year. Its strategic location enables faster delivery within the Jakarta area and also provides easy access to key export departure points.
