DHL in 2003 is the combination of 3 companies; DHL, Danzas and Deutshe Post Euro Express. DHL was formed in 1969 and the success of the company was founded in its innovative idea of sending out documentation in advance of cargo arriving, thereby speeding up the process of importing goods. Today DHL is one of the market leaders in the international air express industry, operating in over 220 countries and territories.
Danzas has a long history, having been founded in 1815 as a transport company. In 1846 the company was entrusted with transporting the mail from Le Havre to New York, and in 1920 were one of the first companies to embrace air transport and started to use air freight between France and England. In 2000, the merger between Danzas Intercontinental and Air Express International Corporation made the group worldwide number one in air freight and one of the five leaders in ocean freight, operating in 150 countries.
Deutsche Post Euro Express was set up by Deutsche Post in 1998, to provide a road-based parcel and distribution network.
Today these 3 companies all come under the brand name DHL. After restructuring there are now 4 divisions; DHL Express, DHL Freight, DHL Danzas Air and Ocean and DHL Solutions. The management of clients duty and VAT is an important service to DHL, so LANGDON Systems are proud to have been chosen to provide Duty Management Systems to DHL Danzas Air and Ocean and DHL Solutions for their operations in the Netherlands.

For over a century Rotary have preserved this heritage, crafting watches with the same quality materials and testing each watch to ensure it can withstand the rigors of everyday life. However, at Rotary they are careful not to get stuck in time!
