DHL moves into packaging compliance

DHL Exel Supply Chain, the international express and logistics company, has launched its own packaging compliance scheme. This system complements its packaging waste data services, which allow customers to calculate their annual packaging weight obligation.

Head of environmental and compliance solutions Sean Hodges said that the service was added because of customer demand. This will be the second compliance scheme that DHL has launched - it already operates a Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) compliance scheme.

Hodges said that people were sceptical at first when DHL moved into WEEE. He said the firm operated a WEEE scheme because the company was initially led by legislation, has a lot of logistical services and carries a lot of electrical goods around the country to recyclers.

He hopes that the success that DHL has had in meeting the obligations of members of its WEEE scheme will be replicated through the new packaging compliance scheme.
