DHL Express, Puma Energy partner in services delivery

Puma Energy and DHL Express have inked a retail partnership, an initiative that guarantees customers better access to global express services.

The Country Manager DHL Express Tanzania, Mr Maurice Effombo, said in Dar es Salaam at the weekend that:

“The express logistics industry, and specifically retail services for consumers and small and medium enterprises, are becoming hugely important not only in Tanzania but in Africa.”

With the business deal, a consumer looking to send documents or parcels overseas can simply walk into a Puma Energy service station to send their shipment, ensuring greater convenience and accessibility to the powerful global network which DHL offers.

The project for which Puma Energy, the globally integrated midstream and downstream energy company and DHL Express, the world’s leading international express services provider have penned down will pilot in 15 service stations in Dar es Salaam, then be rolled out across all Puma Energy service stations in Tanzania.

This includes all domestic and international shipments to major centres across over 220 countries worldwide. At Puma Energy outlets, consumers will also be able to take advantage of Express Easy, DHL’s innovative product offering.

Express Easy provides an easy way to send documents or parcels, as consumers can choose an envelope or one of seven box sizes and enjoy a fixed price for that size, rather than paying a rate based on the weight of the parcel.

On his part, the Managing Director of Puma Energy in Tanzania, Mr Philippe Corsaletti, said, “Puma Energy delivers high quality fuels safely, swiftly and reliably to our customers.”

He said partnering with DHL means that we can extend our service offering and also provide our valued customers the access and affordability around express services that they need.

Consumers are simply able to pick their box, pay the fixed rate and send their document or parcel to any of DHL’s global destinations.

For us to better service this market and open up global opportunities for students, small business owners and general consumers, we needed to both increase access to our express products but, simultaneously, make it easier and more affordable to use them.

Puma Energy is therefore an obvious partner for us – they are not only a quality and reliable African business, they also have an extensive and expanding retail network across the continent, which can benefit consumers.
