DHL Global Forwarding expands its portfolio of digital services
Oct 22, 2019: DHL Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight specialist of Deutsche Post DHL Group, has launched new online service, myDHLi Analytics and has enhanced its existing service myDHLi Quote & Book with a carbon calculator.
myDHLi Analytics provides access to all relevant details about Spend (invoices), Volume, Service Quality, and Customs Activity via dashboards. This allows customers to access and analyze their business data 24/7.
Customers can break down their information by aspects like country, shipper, consignee, trade lane, and more. Downloadable reports offer shareable insights right down to the shipment and invoice levels. The new service goes beyond the operational focus of prior tools.
Furthermore, the company has updated its online quotation and booking tool with a new carbon calculator. According to the company, it is the first freight forwarder to offer a carbon calculator within an online quotation and booking tool.
The new carbon calculator, according to DHL, reflects Deutsche Post DHL’s GoGreen programme and the group’s mission to reduce all logistics-related emissions to zero by 2050.
The integrated CO2 Calculator automatically displays the carbon footprint for the shipment in comparison between air and ocean freight. In the next step, shippers can either choose a clean-burning fuel for ocean freight or an offsetting option for any transport mode.
