Electrolux has named DHL Global Forwarding as its Global Logistics Supplier of the Year.

Electrolux said that they found after 13 years of excellent service, competitive costs, and a willingness to go beyond the call of duty in even the most urgent logistics emergencies were the factors that led to DHL Global Forwarding receiving this award. This makes them the first ever third party logistics provider (3PL) to receive the award, now in its 4th year. DHL Global Forwarding supplies every Electrolux business sector worldwide with a range of services including Less-than-Container Load (LCL) ocean freight, air freight, customs brokerage, and freight consolidation.

“DHL has truly distinguished themselves in supporting Electrolux’s global growth, bringing not only exceptional service quality but a true spirit of collaboration to our supply chain operations in
more than 45 countries for 13 years running,” said Bjorn Vang Jensen, VP of Global Logistics, Electrolux. “The breadth and flexibility of the forwarding network under DHL have helped us maintain consistent and cost-effective shipping all over the world, and have also helped us manage through numerous logistics-related crisis situations over the years.”

“Coordinating the numerous parts, part sizes, and supplier locations involved in the home appliance manufacturing process is no mean feat,” said Kelvin Leung, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding Asia Pacific. “We have been extremely privileged to work with Electrolux across its entire supply chain, combining fast and cost-effective services with customs clearance, order consolidation, and even last-mile solutions to make the entire process as smooth and durable as the appliances we ship. This award truly honors our team’s commitment to supporting Electrolux in even the most extraordinary circumstances – not to mention 13 years of enthusiastic collaboration which shows no sign of waning.”
