DHL Announces EUR40 Million Investment in Indonesia

leave a comment »

 

SINGAPORE, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ —

  • Plans significant increases in transportation fleet, warehouse footprint, and staff strength by 2015
  • Launches new 17,000-square meter multi-user warehouse in Cimanggis targeting the FMCG sector

DHL Supply Chain, the global market leader for contract logistics solutions, today announced an investment of EUR40 million over the next few years to further strengthen its market-leading position in Indonesia. The announcement was made at the launch of its latest 17,000 square meter warehouse in Cimanggis, the third built-to-suit (BTS) warehouse by the company, which boasts specialty features tailored for customers in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry.

By 2015, the company plans to increase its transportation fleet by over 100%, up from its fleet of 370 vehicles at present, grow its staff strength by over 70% from its current base of some 2,250 employees, and add 60% more warehouse space to enhance its network of 164 warehouses it currently operates.

Oscar de Bok, DHL Supply Chain CEO for South and Southeast Asia said, “Indonesia is a key focus for us.  Industry experts estimate average growth this year in Indonesia will be a regional high of 6.3%[1] and within the supply chain industry we actually expect to see double digit growth here. This is why we are proactively investing to ensure we have the right infrastructure and people to support this.”

New multi-user warehouse

DHL Supply Chain unveiled the first of these investments, a new 17,000 square meter warehouse located in Cimanggis built to world class standards with state of the art features customized to suit our customer’s specific requirements. The facility consolidates and stores shipments, then re-distributes to 300 distribution channels and four factories in the area. The warehouse has enough docks to accommodate 176 containers per day or 64,240 per year.  Its strategic location enables faster delivery within the Jakarta area and also provides easy access to key export departure points.

The latest warehouse complements DHL Supply Chain’s offering of other specialist warehouses in the Jabodetabek area — in Cikarang, Kedunghalang, Marunda, Sunter, Sentul and Cililitan — which supports customers in automotive, retail, and the high-technology sectors. The Cimanggis warehouse is the third BTS warehouse by the company, after the ones at Cikarang and Cililitan.

Targeted growth in key industries

Abdul Rahim Tahir, Managing Director, DHL Supply Chain Indonesia said, “Part of our strategy to strengthen customer footprint in Indonesia is to continue to expand our services in the rapidly growing industries in Indonesia, such as the consumer, retail, automotive, energy and technology sectors. We have developed core expertise in these areas in our global network and have replicated these best practices for local execution.”

People development

Apart from investing in business operations, DHL Supply Chain Indonesia is committed to actively helping employees advance their careers within the organisation. Said Mr. Tahir, “We are constantly looking into ways in which we can provide training and development for our people. For example, we have just trained 200 managers under the Executive Development Program run here in Jakarta in conjunction with Pos Politeknik Indonesia and The Chartered Institute of Transport and Logistics (UK).” Since 2012, the company has launched four Operations Simulation Centers which has trained over 1,000 employees. Across all levels of the organization, staff can tap into a number of local, regional and global talent management programs.

DHL Supply Chain first began operations in Indonesia in 2003. Today, through its network of warehouses, DHL Supply Chain offers customers a comprehensive suite of services, including inbound and outbound logistics, warehouse and distribution services, co-packing and customization, and supply chain consultancy.

Huawei Launches Next Generation Data Center Architecture for the Cloud Era

leave a comment »

BARCELONA, Spain/PRNewswire/ — Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today officially launched Distributed Cloud Data Center (DC2, “DC squared”), its next generation data center architecture which is designed to address data centers’ needs in the cloud era. Today’s launch marks Huawei as the first company in the industry to introduce the technical architecture of DC2.

Huawei Introduces DC2 – Next Generation Data Center Architecture for More Agile and Efficient Data Centers in the Cloud Era
With the development of enterprises and operators, earlier data center architectures, which are dispersed and independent, can no longer support changing service applications. Leveraging its in-depth understanding of customers, Huawei introduced the innovative DC2 architecture, which successfully consolidates multiple dispersed, layered, and heterogeneous data centers into a new distributed cloud data center, thereby helping customers improve resource utilization, enhance management efficiency and protect investment.
Christian Perry, Senior Analyst of the analyst firm Technology Business Research (TBR), said: “Huawei’s continued innovation in data center was reflected in TBR’s 2012 Q3 Data Center Benchmark, in which Huawei earned highest data center score, based on its financial, go-to-market, and resource management strategies. The company’s strategy of seamlessly molding cloud around modern data center infrastructure with its DC2 initiative reflects trends we’re increasingly seeing in the market and meets customer requirements for more flexibility and better management.”
“As part of Huawei’s efforts to address the challenges that face data centers brought by cloud computing, the new DC2 architecture is able to lower the TCO, increase IT flexibility and boost management efficiency of data centers by optimizing resource scheduling and utilization, effectively supporting customers’ business,” said Chen Shijun, General Manager of Huawei IT Data Center Solutions.
There are two key technologies in DC2. Huawei FusionSphere enabled by OpenStack ensures the architecture is open. It supports plug-and-play of IT devices with heterogeneous interfaces and multiple virtual products. Huawei ManageOne conducts unified management of dispersed and layered data centers, even including the remote branch.
Huawei has been an active innovator in the data center field for more than a decade. By Q4 2012, Huawei helped global customers build more than 260 data centers, 35 of which are cloud data centers, including State Information Center of China, Digital Hospital of Ghana government and China Mobile International Information Port, which occupies more than 300,000 square meters and is one of the world’s largest data centers.

Brightstar And HzO Partner To Bring WaterBlock(TM) Technology To The Mobile Device Ecosystem

leave a comment »

— New technology set to revolutionize where consumers use electronics

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Brightstar Corp., the world’s largest specialized wireless distributor and HzO, Inc., creator of WaterBlock™, a revolutionary nano-coating that offers water damage protection for electronic devices, today at the 2013 Mobile World Congress announced a partnership agreement to market WaterBlock™ to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and repair & refurbishment processors worldwide.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130226/FL66139LOGO )

“HzO’s WaterBlock™ sets a new standard of water protection available to manufacturers of mobile devices,” said Daniel Ghelman, Vice President of Global Business Development for Brightstar. “This partnership gives us the opportunity to deliver HzO’s cutting edge technology across the mobile device ecosystem, to help eliminate the plague of water damage resulting from drips, splashes and prolonged submersion.”

With a local presence on 6 continents and operations in 50 countries and territories, Brightstar offers customized solutions to manage every critical step in the mobile device lifecycle. Through the partnership, Brightstar will enable its device manufacturers and device repair and refurbishing customers and partners to integrate WaterBlock™ technology directly into new devices. This eliminates the extra cost and hassle of secondary forms of water protection; and provides a solution that can be supported by manufacturer warranties.

“Our relationship with industry giant Brightstar brings WaterBlock’s to the global stage and ultimately to the end consumer,” said Rick Peterson, Vice President of Business Development for HzO, Inc. “Aligning with one of the fastest growing global wireless companies expedites delivery of our technology to consumers who are eager to have the freedom to use their devices near water and in the rain without the worry of catastrophic failure.”

WaterBlock™ technology creates a thin, impenetrable layer of protection that guards electronics not only against drips to splashes, but from full submersion. Through a proprietary vapor deposition process, the protective nano-coating is applied in a vacuum chamber and works from the inside out to shield even the most intricate parts of electronic devices. It forms a seamless barrier that is invisible to the naked eye and 100 times the thickness of traditional plasma coatings.

“WaterBlock™ offers an unprecedented level of protection without changing the look and feel of the device, which leads to a high level of customer satisfaction,” Peterson said. “Customers are not the only ones who will be pleased; OEMs, operators and retailers will be able to offer superior devices with the security that comes with WaterBlock™ technology already inside.”
