DHL International Sierra Leone will be celebrating 20 years of operating in the country this month.
To commemorate this special occasion, the management of DHL will be organizing a thanksgiving service this Friday at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Brookfields in Freetown, to be followed by a service on Sunday at the Sanctuary Praise Church at 10.30am.
The Anniversary cocktail will take place at the Country Lodge on May 11.
The final programme for the celebrations will be the following Saturday on May 12 when golf, squash and tennis finals will be played beginning at 4.00pm.
DHL was founded in 1969 by Adrian Dalsey, Larry Hillblom and Robert Lynn, as a courier service between San Francisco and Honolulu. The founders’ last initials formed the company’s name.
DHL maintains offices in more than 220 countries around the world. Dispatches can be made by registered post to Freetown in Sierra Leone.
However, items can be sent by ordinary sealed airmail post to anywhere in Sierra Leone, or by courier such as DHL (for which there is an extra charge). Those who live in Sierra Leone but not in Freetown and who want registered airmail dispatches are advised to use an address in Freetown or an address outside Sierra Leone, from which the member can arrange to collect his/her parcel.
Many CIC members in Sierra Leone who work for international companies or organizations request that their training materials, diplomas etc are sent by CIC to an address for their company/organization outside Sierra Leone, for onward delivery by their company/organization to them.
DHL’s vision suites are designed to provide an interactive environment where they facilitate understanding of supply chain complexities and identification of solutions.
