DHL has launched a new Supply Chain Security Consultancy Service, intended to help its clients tackle issues such as customs compliance, security breaches and best practise.
DHL currently offers ten different training modules that are delivered via interactive sessions and on-site training. Training can be tailored to the specific needs of the company’s existing supply chain, while DHL will also be offering on-site audits to validate that supply chains are meeting certain security criteria.
For example, private companies can volunteer for the US government’s supply chain programme, the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), or the EU’s Authorized Economic Operator (AEO/OEA) certification, among others. DHL’s consultancy service can help private companies to achieve compliancy with these programmes.
“At DHL Global Forwarding, compliance with C-TPAT and all other global security programs are essential to the way we do business,” said Richard Kolbusz, DHL’s head of Security and Operational Resilience in the Americas.
“As a result, we have established an extensive curriculum, in multiple languages, designed to promote compliance with all World Customs Organization recognised supply chain security programs.”
