DHL Express Fiji will open $1 million transactional data entry centre at their Raiwaqa head office in Suva next week.

This was revealed by DHL Express Fiji and Pacific Islands country manager, Mark Komene in Suva on Thursday.

He said it was a 70-seat centre that was expected to eventually cater for 200 people.

However, Mr Komene said the centre would start off servicing around 60 people and expected to build up from there.

He said the centre would carry out transactional data jobs for Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and other Pacific countries.

Mr Komene said the process was currently being carried out in Australia and New Zealand but with the new centre it would also be carried out in Fiji.

“Any kind of backups to the process is currently done in Australia and New Zealand, now it will be brought up to Fiji and done here,” Mr Komene said.

“This is investment of around half a million dollars and we have worked with partners to build the centre, it will officially open on March 9th.”

Mr Komene said the centre would provide more jobs for people in Raiwaqa.

He said they established similar centres in countries like Bangladesh, India, Malaysia and Philippines.

“There a high quality people coming out of universities in Fiji and the centres will be a good place for them to work,” he said.

“We need high quality customers and high quality logistics graduates, this is the type of role they will be doing – custom clarification process.”

He said paper work clarifications for freights would be done in Fiji before it was delivered.

“We are doing it here because we got high quality people, they are smart, they understand customs and regulations,” Mr Komene said.

He said it would benefit their role in sales and operations reporting.

“We are bringing Fiji closer to the world when we lift our process and making them global,” Mr Komene said.
