DHL sets wheels rolling for Tour de France
DHL, Messe Düsseldorf, Düsseldorf airport, the utility company Stadtwerke Düsseldorf, the rail service provider Rheinbahn and the waste management service provider Awista are six of the official supporters of the Tour de France during the starting stage in Düsseldorf (Germany) from 29 June to 2 July. DHL already supported the Grand Départ in Utrecht (Netherlands) in 2015.
DHL suits the Tour – and not just in terms of colour. In Europe, the company has been making increasing use of bike couriers to deliver express shipments for several years, and transport bicycles are deployed on up to 60% of the delivery routes in inner cities in some countries. Bike couriers are en route for DHL in Berlin, Frankfurt, Darmstadt, Bremen and certain other German cities. (ah)
