DHL announces reconciliation plan

DHL New Zealand

International logistics and shipping company, DHL, has made a formal commitment to reconciliation as a first step towards creating a more meaningful relationship with Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

“I am extremely proud that DHL Australia has made this important first step towards reconciliation, supporting a strong and inclusive future for all,” said VP, Managing Director for DHL eCommerce, Denise McGrouther.

“I recognise as leaders, we have much to do to drive meaningful change. Our deeply held values will ensure our people build strong and respectful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to benefit the local communities we serve.”

The commitment comes in the form of the company’s inaugural Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan, which has been endorsed by Reconciliation Australia. DHL has also commissioned Indigenous artist Jake Simon, a Worimi – Biripi man, to create an artwork that reflects the culture and values of the company and will use the artwork across its business assets in Australia.
