DHL forms dedicated semiconductor service

July 31, 2017 // By Peter Clarke
Deutsche Post subsidiary DHL is combining a number of separate competencies to form DHL Semiconductor Logistics and is launching a global support center with teams in Europe, Asia-Pacific and the United States.

The suite of services will cover the supply chain from inbound to manufacturing facilities through wafer movements to assembly and test and on to final distribution to end users. The idea is to provide a global and comprehensive engagement that looks after compliance with international regulations, safety, security for these high-value goods and works in progress.

"With more than 3,000 dedicated employees and 50 facilities worldwide, we have built extensive infrastructure and expertise for the semiconductor industry," said Rob Siegers, president of DHL's technology sector. "With our new offer, we connect DHL's broad capabilities, enabling us to individually service our customers along their complete supply chain in a cost-efficient way."

Intel has been providing input to DHL on the formation of the Global Capital Support Center.
