The sky is not the limit
A giant leap for logistics

In 1969, Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon. This was one of the biggest human achievements of all time. Just a few months later, three different pioneers – Adrian Dalsey, Larry Hillblom, and Robert Lynn – created another legendary moment. They founded DHL: the first international delivery service. This was a smart initiative that grew into the largest logistics company in the world. How did they do this? By always continuing to push the boundaries. This is perfectly summed up our ultimate goal: to deliver on the moon. A mission that Neil would be proud of.
