DHL Freight has opened a new office in Almaty, Kazakhstan.

According to a statement from the company, this "strategically important business center" provides direct transport routes to the key logistic hubs of Europe, Russia and China. With this development, the DHL Freight network is being expanded and the flow of goods between these markets optimized for the company.

"This new transit point makes a faster delivery time for our customers possible – not only for Europe, Russia and China but also in Kazakhstan itself. At the same time, this investment will contribute to further economic growth of this country, which has the key role as the access point to Central Asia", explains Stefano Arganese, CEO of DHL Freight Central Eastern Southern Europe & Americas, Middle East, Africa.

The new DHL Freight facility is situated in the largest warehouse park in an industrial area close to Almaty, Kazakhstan’s largest city. This location at the crossroads of two major transport routes – the Transport Corridor Europe Caucasus Asia (TRACEA) and the Great Almaty Circle Motor Road (BAKAD) – ensures "optimal connections."

The premises in Almaty offer a full range of logistic services, including bonded warehousing and customs brokerage services as well as online tracking, registration and maintenance of goods via a warehouse management system. Container terminal services available include cross-docking, shunting and crane services, and customs and bonded storage.

With the new facility and road freight services offered, the company will supplement its existing business in Kazakhstan and reinforce its logistics network. DHL Global Forwarding has been operating in Kazakhstan since 2007 and coordinates ocean and air freight transport from six offices throughout the country.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
