DHL targets solar panel suppliers

DHL is targeting Chinese solar panel makers with a new distribution facility at Moerdijk in The Netherlands.

It is offering an end-to-end logistics service including a combination of air and ocean transport, warehousing, distribution and fiscal services.

Piak-hwee Tan, vice president marketing & sales at DHL Global Forwarding China, said: “It is very important for Chinese companies to have a comprehensive solution for all elements of their supply chain and to have a partner that can respond quickly to changing market conditions.”

DHL already serves a number of companies from other energy sectors at Moerdijk. For solar panel customers DHL has a dedicated warehouse area of around 4,000 square metres.
