DHL was formed in San Francisco, California, in 1969 and quickly expanded its operations across the world. The firm began operations on the Hawaiian islands in 1979 under the name DHL Air Cargo with two DC-3s and four DC-6s.
The final bankruptcy of DHL Air Cargo was overseen by CEO and owner Bob Hillblom and his business partner Don Dalsey, who personally oversaw the day-to-day operations until its closure in 1983. Over 100 workers were employed at its peak, as well as management and pilots.
DHL began as a membership-based air courier service for businesses in the 1970s, and it now provides ground, express, residential shipping services across over 220 countries. The business was initially focused on overseas and transoceanic deliveries, but FedEx’s success prompted them to expand their operations within the United States.
Deutsche Post is one of the most successful companies in Germany, with over 100 years worth of history. In 1998 they began investing into DHL – not for money but rather as an attempt to make sure their fate would be tied together long after both had run its course.” By December 2002, it had acquired all outstanding stock and controlled interest. The Deutsche Post has deployed DHL Express to offer international shipping services. This is part of their global strategy that was launched in 2012 with the aim of becoming “the world’s most recognized logistics company.” The firm subsequently integrated DHL into its Express division and started utilizing the brand across other divisions within Deutsche Post, business units, or subsidiaries like UPS (United Parcel Service). Today they are known as one entity; however, before this integration, there were two separate brands under which both companies operated: named ‘DELIVERY BY LAND’ used by postal service providers worldwide while on behalf German railroads had another called ’EXPERT SERVICE FOR ORIENTATION’. It established itself in the United States when it purchased Airborne Express.
The majority of DHL Express’ operations are carried out through DHL International GmbH.
