Frank Appel, CEO of the German logistics leader Deutsche Post DHL Group, pledged further investment in Turkey in his statement to Turkish media.
Appel said, “DHL is investing EUR 135 million to build a state-of-the-art operation center at the new Istanbul Airport. We are ready to enlarge our operations in Turkey as it offers great opportunities for investors to grow and enhance their export activities.”
Appel further stated that DHL will doubtlessly make new investments in Turkey in the future by adding more service centers and warehouses.
Airing his hopeful opinions on the global economy in the post-COVID-19 period, he said, “Despite the pandemic’s large devastating effects on all sectors, the consumer behavior has changed with the rise of e-commerce. We will see further increase in online sales and an acceleration in the B2B sector again in 2021.”
