DHL, the world leader in international express delivery, has been recognized as Best Logistics Partner for its services to the aerospace sector at the Aircraft Technology Engineering & Maintenance (ATE&M) Awards 2014. The annual awards, organized by MRO Network and Aircraft Technology Engineering & Maintenance magazine, aim to recognize and celebrate success in the global commercial aviation aftermarket.
DHL Express is a major player in commercial aviation and has unrivalled expertise in the sector, said Wolfgang Albeck, Managing Director, DHL Express Germany & Austria We operate one of the largest dedicated freighter fleets in the world. Additionally, our international express delivery services are in high demand from airlines, manufactures and service providers, both within the after sales segment and for aircraft-on-ground situations. We are therefore delighted to receive this acknowledgement that our commitment to service excellence is paying off from our customers within the industry.
The ATE&M Awards are based on a two-stage process: industry peers nominate their preferred supplier in each category, with the winner then selected from a shortlist of the most frequently nominated candidates by a panel of nineteen distinguished industry judges. The Best Logistics Partner Award was judged across dimensions such as high quality service, flexibility, competitive price structure and reliability.

Just recently, the company announced investments of USD 177 million to extend its leadership status in the Middle East and North Africa region. It also recently embarked on a USD 260 million investment program in the UK in July 2014. This year alone, DHL has received external recognition for industry-leading solutions and service excellence with over 170 awards in more than 40 countries.
