DHL Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight specialist of Deutsche Post DHL Group, has assumed all freight operations for Lindex.

Lindex' fashion assortment is available in around 490 stores across 18 Markets as well as via e-commerce in 30 countries.
"Because of the high number of origins and destinations, Lindex needs a provider who can be a true partner, fully engaged and committed to developing solutions that work. We have a proven expertise across all transport modes and logistics services ranging from Air and Ocean Freight to Rail Freight for FCL and LCL as well as Customs Clearance. We are thrilled to be taking over Lindex' cargo operations again," declares Chris Arnold, Head of Operations - ISC Nordics & CEE of DHL Global Forwarding.
