History of DHL

The history of great eitos DHL begins in 1969 when it was founded in San Francisco by Adrian Dalsey, Larry Hillblom and Robert Lynn. It started with a second hand car with a credit card as the only financing type.
DHL's name comes from the combination of the initials of its founders, Adrian Dalsey, Larry Hillblom and Robert Lynn. Among the three had the clever idea to deliver the shipping documents in advance, by plane from San Francisco to Honolulu. In this way, customs procedures could begin before the ship reached port. The download time was substantially reduced so that the owners will save a fortune. The idea was the beginning of a new industry, the international express delivery service.
In 1970, DHL began operations in the East Coast of the United States and expanded into the Pacific in 1971. In 1974, opened its first European office in London. Since 1977, DHL has been present in the Middle East and in 1978 opened its first office in Germany.
Technology played a trick on DHL as the development of the fax, the potential of classical document delivery fell dramatically. So in 1980, DHL launched the service, express delivery of goods.
One of the major milestones of the company, was the participation of Lufthansa and Japan Airlines, DHL Worldwide, between 1990 and 1992, thus ensuring long term access to freight services of two of the major world airlines and their infrastructure at major airports.
In 2003, DHL was the total purchase Deutsche Post World Net Group, which already held a stake in the company since 1998.
In 2005 it acquired Exel, a leading logistics sector employment, strengthening the logistics division of DHL.
