NAIROBI, Kenya Jun 18 – DHL Express has identified East Africa and particularly Kenya, as a key zone for growth within Sub-Saharan Africa.

DHL Express Sub-Saharan Africa Managing Director Charles Brewer says the company is set to invest more in the region in 2014 with a focus on the Small Medium and Enterprises (SMEs).

“There are hundreds of SMEs in Kenya and we need to provide easy access and a team of highly trained certified international specialists to lead them to the very obvious opportunities that trading with the world can present. DHL is committed to becoming their provider of choice and as part of that journey we will provide even more access points across the region. We continue to see SMEs as a major engine for growth in Kenya and Africa as a whole,” Brewer said.

Brewer also cites another key focus for DHL in the region is investment in network capabilities pointing out that there are a number of fleet and facility upgrades happening in 2014.

He says that there is a growing need for logistics services in the region pointing out that the emergence of technology and e-commerce is increasingly requiring a higher volume of goods to be transported same-day across the continent and the globe.

He said the company will continue to upgrade its network operations so as to meet the expectations while maintaining excellent service standards.

He also said that country’s gradual improvement in infrastructure has made it easier to move goods and conduct business within Kenya and across borders

“We have been pleased with our progress over the last six months, which reflects the growth in the financial and communications sectors and our own employees’ passion for the business. We have also seen the benefits of the country’s gradual improvement in infrastructure, which has made it easier to move goods and conduct business within Kenya and across borders,” Brewer said.
