DHL Response to Covid-19
"Connecting People, Improving Lives" is Deutsche Post DHL Group's mission and guides always our effort to become exemplary corporate citizens.
In this critical global health crisis, our Logistics services and our worldwide network play a critical role, also in saving lives-whether it is by sending emergency medical equipment and supplies to healthcare workers; delivering necessity goods to private customers; or by finding solutions for companies to continue their operations.
Against the backdrop of the global Covid19 outbreak, Deutsche Post DHL Group business operations are being continuously adapted to mitigate potential impacts. As a globally operating company, epidemic and pandemic risk scenarios are an integral part of the Group's continuous risk planning. The Group follows a holistic management process that enables our business units to ensure the best possible operations for our customers even in an emergency.
The safety of our employees and customers is paramount. In order to closely monitor and manage the Coronavirus outbreak, a Deutsche Post DHL Group Coronavirus task force has been established, led by the Group’s CEO. The Group’s task force also coordinates with international organizations (such as the WHO, CDC, ECDC and Robert Koch Institute) and provides the necessary information to all employees and relevant operations.
