DHL is a global courier and logistics company that was founded in 1969 in San Francisco by Adrian Dalsey, Larry Hillblom, and Robert Lynn.
DHL initially specialized in providing courier services between San Francisco and Honolulu, but it quickly expanded its operations to other parts of the world.
In 1971, DHL established its first international service, providing courier services between San Francisco and Hong Kong.
Throughout the 1970s, DHL continued to expand its international network, opening offices in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. In 1983, DHL became the first international courier company to establish operations in China.
DHL was acquired by the German logistics company Deutsche Post in 2002, and it is now a division of Deutsche Post DHL Group.
DHL operates in over 220 countries and territories around the world, providing a range of logistics services including international express delivery, freight forwarding, and supply chain management.
DHL has a fleet of over 250 aircraft and employs more than 380,000 people worldwide. In recent years, DHL has focused on expanding its operations in emerging markets, particularly in Africa and Asia.
DHL is committed to sustainability and has set a number of ambitious environmental targets, including reducing its carbon emissions to zero by 2050.
