DHL has won a new contract from Hilti Ireland, building on existing relationships in other markets around the world. 

Two of DHL’s business arms, DHL Supply Chain and DHL Express will provide logistics services in warehouse and transport respectively, delivering custom solutions to Hilti.

DHL want to support Hilti’s growth driving warehouse efficiency with newly developed KPIs targeting improved customer experience and reduced lead times.  

Damien Schmutz, General Manager, Hilti Ireland said: “It has been a very busy period in the lead up to launching our partnership with DHL and we would like to thank both teams for their hard work and commitment.

“The complete DHL offering, from warehousing to transport, will support us in delivering an efficient and reliable service to our customers, meeting our business needs and coping effectively with changes in demand.”

Gavin Murdoch, MD Network Transport Solutions, DHL Supply Chain UK&I said: “We are very proud of our colleagues for going above and beyond to deliver a high-quality warehousing solution for Hilti in a limited timeframe.

“Hilti is a valued strategic global partner, and we are delighted to be supporting their Ireland operation.”

Brian Murray, Commercial & Same Day Director, DHL Express said: “The Hilti partnership brings together all the advantages of working with the DHL Group. The DHL Express division will provide exceptional market-leading Express delivery service, reinforced by the industry's largest local service support team.

“Additionally, Hilti gains access to innovative transport solutions from DHL's Same Day Services for specialized deliveries beyond the Express option.  We look forward to working closely with Hilti and our sister company DHL Supply Chain on this new partnership.
