DHL, CA Sign Expanded Express, Logistics Pact
DHL Chosen as Exclusive Shipping Partner
DHL, the world’s leading express delivery and logistics company, announced today it has been chosen by CA, Inc., one of the world’s largest management software companies, as its exclusive partner for domestic and international door-to-door express and heavyweight transportation and customs brokerage services worldwide.
Based in Islandia, N.Y., home to one of its key distribution centers and corporate offices, CA was looking for a single express shipping and logistics company that would unify its supply chain in more than 140 countries through an efficient and highly responsive, single point-of-contact account management. CA had been using multiple vendors for its domestic and international transportation services and had managed its relationships on a regional level rather than through a uniform global solution.
The multi-year agreement calls for DHL to manage the transportation of all CA shipments linking its five global distribution centers with all of CA’s sales facilities. The new agreement builds upon an ongoing and successful 15-year relationship under which DHL coordinates all of CA’s shipping services in North America as well as international transportation from North America to worldwide destinations.
“By creating a global supply chain platform to be managed by a single shipping and logistics partner, we now have better service reliability, control, and visibility of our express shipping and logistic needs,” said Stan Brown, Vice President of Global Supply Chain and Logistics, CA. “Also by working with DHL, we can leverage our transportation spending with greater efficiency, while better managing our investments by individual country and product line.”
“What set DHL apart was the total transparency and accountability it brings to our relationship. DHL is intimately familiar with our complex business challenges, and is building innovative solutions that capitalize on the opportunities while overcoming any obstacles in our path,” continued Brown.
“DHL possesses a robust and sophisticated set of tools to help CA simplify its supply chain, reduce its costs and enhance the reliability of its customer service - regardless of size or time sensitivity,” said Milton Kohler, Global Customer Relationship Manager, DHL. “Most important, we are aligned with CA’s global supply chain strategies to help them reach their global supply chain objectives. We have laid the foundation for a durable, comprehensive alliance driven by a solid understanding of CA’s business, and with our global reach, powerful visibility tools and top-to-bottom commitment to service excellence, DHL will help CA transform its supply chain and seamlessly adapt to the changes and challenges ahead,” continued Kohler.
