DHL Freight turns on driver recruitment initiative

Company hopes to create as many as 500 jobs across Europe.

 
   DHL Freight hopes to create up to 500 jobs across Europe as part of a driver recruitment initiative.
   The company said it is launching a pilot project at five locations that “provide long-term career prospects, modified job profiles offering more varied work and ultimately make it easier to absorb peaks at busy times.”
   As part of the project, about 30 jobs were initially created at the German DHL Freight branches in Maintal, Malsfeld, Koblenz, Sehlem and Erfurt in the spring. The new employees take on driving duties to complement existing transport capacities and, if necessary, also take on other tasks at the branches, the company said.
   Particularly during the peak season, the new drivers will be out on the road covering the first-mile and last-mile legs of deliveries for their particular branches, DHL Freight said.
We see a significant slowdown in import growth in 2019 as the market adjusts to higher prices due to the Trump tariffs and the impact on consumer and industry confidence going forward.
