    Pros

    Good people, highly ambitious business, leverage of DPDHL supply chain yet to be unlocked

    Cons

    Takes a while to gain backing from senior business directors, sometimes slow in making decisions especially when involving changes to their processes. Still some time before real benefit is seen from unlocking DPDHL Supply chain capabilities

    Pros

    Diversity of cultures and people. Confidentiality and trustworthiness.

    Cons

    Too many rules to follow. To many steps to reach one simple aim.

    Advice to Management

    Try to simplify the way of working eliminating as much steps of workflow as possible in order to gain time and save money. Give more financial autonomy to the local hubs.
