DHL secures multi-year contract with Komatsu


Komatsu, a global manufacturer and supplier of construction and mining equipment, has signed a new multi-year agreement with DHL Express and DHL Global Forwarding. As part of the contract DHL will import more than 1m kg of Komatsu machinery, equipment and spare parts annually into Australia and New Zealand.

In close coordination with Komatsu’s foreign offices and suppliers, DHL will provide complete end-to-end air freight imports for Komatsu primarily from the US and Japan to Australia across Komatsu’s three distribution centres in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. DHL will also manage the entire customs brokerage process.

“Komatsu’s customers have come to expect minimal downtime from operating their equipment, and DHL Express’ global network plays an important role in ensuring critical parts and documentation get to them on time, wherever they are,” said Gary Edstein, CEO and Senior Vice President, DHL Express Oceania.
