DHL Industrial Projects digitalises subcontractor management

DHL Industrial Projects has launched a digital subcontractor management program aimed at reducing risk in the supply chain and ensuring compliance with safety and environmental standards.

The program, which was developed in partnership with supply chain risk and performance management solution provider Achilles Information, includes rigorous prequalification processes. This, according to DHL, enables the company to identify the best suppliers for its customers’ needs and assure clients that their supply chain meets requirements for compliance, social responsibility and risk management.

It will allow the company to share data on the risk levels and performance of more than 1,000 key subcontractors across its operations.

Those subcontractors registering on the new platform will have access to a third-party evaluation of their performance against industry standards.

The new program will also help DHL Industrial Projects meet its Zero Harm and Zero Tolerance safety targets.

“Safety and compliance are at the heart of everything we do,” said Nikola Hagleitner, DHL Industrial Projectsceo, pointing out: “Our quality standards apply not just to our internal processes, but also to our wider business partners.”

Jay Katzen,ceo of Achilles Information, added: “Ensuring suppliers maintain the highest standards is a complex but extremely important undertaking. Achilles will provide DHL the tools to get a more extensive overview of subcontractors’ operations and to help suppliers’ meet critical humanitarian and environmental standards.”
