DHL Industrial Projects, a unit of DHL Global Forwarding that manages complex project logistics, deep sea chartering activity and heavy-lift cargo, is launching a new digital Sub-contractor Management Program to mitigate risks and ensure highest standards according to environmental and safety compliance. With increased supply chain transparency, DHL Industrial Projects will be able to identify the best suppliers for customers’ needs and share data on the risk levels and performance of more than 1,000 key subcontractors across its operations.
“Safety and compliance are at the heart of everything we do,” asserts Nikola Hagleitner, CEO DHL Industrial Projects. “We are thrilled to have now a digital solution in place that will make the data we rely on accessible across all our operations. Our quality standards apply not just to our internal processes, but also to our wider business partners. The new platform will ensure that we meet and exceed the expectations of our customers.”
Developed together with Achilles, one of the leading providers for supply chain risk and performance management, the new platform will allow DHL Industrial Projects to meet its Zero Harm and Zero Tolerance targets, which are focused on keeping people and places, wherever the company does business, safe.
