Vincent Yong has been named as the new Managing Director of Indonesia for DHL Global Forwarding. Previously, Mr. Yong was the Chief Operating Officer of DHL Global Forwarding Thailand where he steered his team through many challenges and numerous changes to the country’s transport infrastructure, and significantly expanding the business and consolidating operations in a 100,000-sqft Multimodal Hub at Suvarnabhumi Airport in the process.

Mr. Vincent Yong

“Vincent has proven time and again his ability to overcome even the most unexpected and testing of situations in Southeast Asia’s logistics sphere,” said Thomas Tieber, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding ASEAN and South Asia. “I have full confidence that his skills and cross-disciplinary expertise will see him take our business in Indonesia to new heights — and inspire pride in our services amongst both employees and customers alike — as the country continues to develop and mature at speed.”

“My time in Thailand saw us go from one ‘adventure’ to another — which helped me develop a practical understanding of challenges; from air and ocean logistics operations to crisis management, security, and overall macroeconomic current affairs — and will prove particularly useful in managing our dynamic business operations in Indonesia,” Mr. Yong said. “In addition, my most recent role as Regional Head of Technology leads to my strong belief that technology will be a powerful proponent in propelling Indonesia to the next level.”

“As Indonesia continues to invest in technology and infrastructure — like its Mass Rapid Transit network and expanded airport terminals — we expect the costs of trade and doing business to further ease. Moreover, as the world’s fourth most populous country, Indonesia still holds vast potential for growth in domestic consumption despite slowing growth in imports and exports alike. I’m looking forward to strengthening DHL’s competitive advantage in this fast-evolving market.”
