Adrian Dalsey, Larry Hillblom and Robert Lynn, three ambitious businessmen from San Francisco, founded DHL in 1969.
They initially started by transporting customs documents by air. As a result, the time taken for customs to process freight shipments was dramatically reduced. The first flights tended to be between San Francisco and Honolulu but the network was later expanded to all corners of the globe. Since 2013, DHL has been the market-leader with respect to international express deliveries and logistics.

DHL invests in new hub at Brussels Airport
We are currently investing over EUR 114 million to build a new, state of the art HUB distribution center in Brussels by mid 2017. This will allow Belgian companies to increase their export volume and deliver packages abroad even more quickly and reliably.
The Brussels Hub will triple capacity from 12,000 to 39,500 shipments per hour thanks to the modernization of the sorting technologies used, allowing DHL to respond to expected further growth in international express shipments.
