DHL increases market share

5:51 am on 16 July 2009

DHL says its business is growing, despite declining volumes across the sector in New Zealand.

The logistics company has spent $14 million constructing a new warehouse facility near Auckland international airport and plans to increase staff levels by about 5% in the next year.

Managing director Brian Broom says DHL has increased its market share by 20% in the past two years, mainly due to growth in the pharmacuetical, industrial and FMCG sectors.

But he says market conditions are challenging, and will probably remain that way for some time.
