For the students this was an opportunity to see a real “logistics operation” in practice. During the visit we were shown how the organisation works, and shown both the goods receipting and storage processes, and forward logistics to the retailers.

Students’ comments following the visit included – “good to see it ‘for real’ rather than on the paper”, “really interesting”.

DHL have 4 key areas of business including its famous Express packages and mail services. DHL Bicester is just one of its operations within its Supply Chain grouping.
