DHL Global Forwarding and Mubadala sign strategic partnership


DHL Global Forwarding and Mubadala Development Company have initiated a strategic partnership to streamline the Abu Dhabi company’s processes and improve efficiency for customers.

Mubadala Aerospace is looking to transform inbound to aerospace manufacturing logistics and maintenance, repair and overhaul material flows. DHL will streamline all logistics process flows of Mubadala Aerospace, which it says reduces the need for customising individual assets and ensures visibility, control and improvement.

DHL chief executive officer (CEO) Middle East & Africa, Claudio Scandella says: “With this new strategic partnership we as DHL can demonstrate our expertise as an innovative lead logistics partner. Our solution enables the end-to-end management of Mubadala’s supply chain creating visibility across all assets in scope.”

Mubadala aerospace & engineering services CEO, Homaid Al Shimmari says: “As Abu Dhabi’s aerospace cluster develops at the Nibras Al Ain Aerospace Park, with new companies being established with our global OEM partners as well as the expansion of our current businesses, a robust supply chain supported by DHL, will be an essential part of future success.”

About 66 per cent of cargo transported in the course of the five year partnership will be airfreight and is designed to optimise logistics, speed of change and cost reductions to all assets and customers across the globe.
