In a bid to meet the growth in international trade, both locally and regionally, DHL Express opened its new Business Service Centre yesterday.

The service centre has the capacity to cater for 200 employees, who will work round-the-clock, completing back-end business services for Australia and New Zealand organisations.

DHL Express Fiji Country Manager, Mark Komene said: “Fiji is a nation with highly-skilled, technology savvy workers. Each year, Fiji’s universities produce outstanding graduates with high levels of English language proficiency and technical skills- capabilities DHL Express employees need to succeed in international logistics.”

Over the next three years, DHL Express has committed to invest $F500,000 into facility infrastructure in Fiji.

This investment encompasses the cost of facility leases, office fit-outs, and information technology infrastructure. This also includes a $F70,000 grant from AusAid, which has contributed to the development of the centre.

The expansion of the Suva Business Service Centre follows significant recent facility upgrades in 2015 and 2016 in the Oceania region, including an upgraded $NZ15.3 million ($F23m) Auckland Gateway Facility, an $A20m ($F32m) Melbourne Gateway Facility, and the $A1.8m ($F2.8m) Canberra Service Centre.

“Our Business Service Centre is a significant investment in the long-term regional growth strategy of DHL Express.

“DHL Express is proud to have been operating in Fiji since 1976, and this new centre signals a significant ongoing commitment to the future of DHL in the South Pacific,” he said.
