Based in Phnom Penh, Wu will lead and manage DHL Global Forwarding’s business activities in the country, and be responsible for driving growth in international freight forwarding, transportation, warehousing, and value-added logistics services.

DHL Global Forwarding for Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, Clement Blanc, says: “One of the fastest-growing among Asia’s developing economies, Cambodia has enjoyed sustained economic growth in recent years, driven by garment exports, real estate, and construction.

We expect to see increasing demand for logistics services, as trade continues to flourish. I look forward to leading a passionate team that’s dedicated to paving the way for DHL’s market leadership and success here.”
