DHL ships hobbyist drones for Shenzhen Youkeshu Technologies
GERMANY's DHL Global Forwarding will ship remotely controlled helicopters and other hobbyist items for Shenzhen Youkeshu Technologies, a major Chinese consumer electronics exporter, the company announced.
The deal will see DHL establish a dedicated 24/7 freight control tower in Shenzhen to manage Shenzhen Youkeshu Technologies shipments of remotely controlled helicopters to more than 100 countries.
As well as providing freight services to Asian, European and British hubs, DHL will also manage Shenzhen Youkeshu Technologies' growing product portfolio.
Said Shenzhen Youkeshu Technologies vice president Marpo Wang: "E-commerce has brought complexity to shipment volume, transit time, and cargo-ready dates, demanding a great deal of agility to accurately meet constant swings in demand."
"With more than 100,000 square metres of warehouse storage for around 100,000 SKUs from 4,000 different suppliers, we need a solutions provider who could not only provide a wide range of forwarding modes and routes, but also manage our complex space and delivery requirements in an effective and timely manner," he said.
DHL staff will work with Shenzhen Youkeshu Technologies teams to develop forwarding for its e-commerce division, one of the company's fastest-growing channels for overseas sales.
