International express and logistics service provider, DHL Express MENA, has signed a partnership with FODEL, the first Pick-up and Drop-off (PUDO) network provider in the GCC that, through an advanced PUDO technology platform, signs up and manages local merchants from across the region as alternative pick-up locations to home delivery. The partnership with FODEL consolidates last-mile logistics and provides a more convenient delivery solution for DHL MENA’s customers. Commenting on the partnership, CEO of DHL Express MENA, Nour Suliman said: “eCommerce in the MENA is on an upward trend and we anticipate that it will continue on its double-digit trajectory in the foreseeable future. Our partnership with FODEL will enable us to overcome any delivery challenges, particularly last mile, by building on its extensive network of PUDO locations for both collections and eventually returns.”The partnership will drive operational and cost efficiencies for DHL, as well as consumer convenience and choice, while also tackling a range of environmental and operational challenges associated with online shopping and failed deliveries.
