DHL Express, the world?s leading courier company, says since it introduced the unique product Import Express, transportation of documents and parcels from around the world into Ghana has been simplified.

?Due to changing global market dynamics, businesses now demand sophisticated distribution solutions,? said Managing Director, DHL Express Anglophone Africa, Randy Buday.

?Orders from international suppliers need to be received on time, quickly and reliably, as keeping stock on hand is very expensive. DHL Import Express is the fast, easy-to-use service that allows you to import your goods from more than 220 countries around the world, while payment for the freight cost is made in local currency,? Buday explained.

Speaking on the product, he said: ?Import Express gives you total control since it enables you to control your inbound transport costs by negotiating the price of purchased goods and eliminating any built-in charges. Not only does it give you flexibility, since you can send shipments of any size, weight or value, but you?re able to import from over 220 countries worldwide?

He added: ?The most important benefit, though, is the simplicity of the service. You use one account number, so it?s not necessary for your supplier to have a DHL account; there is one, transparent price since the pricing covers pick-up, export from origin, express international transportation and delivery to your door; and you only need to deal with one invoice, which is done in your local currency.? ?

Import Express is unique to DHL Express worldwide, as the whole process from pick-up to delivery is carried out on the DHL network.

Explaining why the service is difficult to replicate by others, he said: ?It is a service that requires global presence, with the right deployment of aircraft to connect the major origin and destination stations. This requires significant capital outlay as well as experience to ensure such pick-ups and deliveries are successful; not just once, but every time.?

He said the response from customers has been impressive, especially in Ghana where imports are on a large scale for both big businesses and SMEs.

DHL is a global network composed of more than 220 countries and territories. Its 275,000 employees worldwide offer customers superior service quality and local knowledge to satisfy their supply-chain requirements. DHL accepts its social responsibility by supporting climate protection, disaster management, and education.

DHL is part of Deutsche Post DHL.? The Group generated revenue of 53 billion euro in 2011.
