DHL Global Forwarding has launched a helpdesk in Berlin that is aims to meet the specific needs of start-ups.
The forwarder said the new helpdesk will assist new and expanding start-up companies in the areas of logistics and supply chain development in and beyond Germany.
“Our customer base of start-ups with global operations is growing rapidly at our branch in Berlin. Understandably, they have a greater need for advice and services, particularly in the initial stages,” explains Joachim Hermansky, vice president customer service Germany at DHL Global Forwarding.
“That is precisely why we trained up a young team that acts as a link between companies going global and traditional handling departments. They understand both worlds and that allows them to provide swift and flexible support.”
