From sub-assembly, co-packing, customization, postponement, kitting, sequencing to pre-retail activities across all industry sectors, we help you reduce costs, reduce inventories, and better match supply with demand.
Assembly and Co-packing (Value Added Services)
DHL finished goods warehousing solutions are not just about holding stock. There are a wide range of additional services that we offer as part of an overall solution that can improve the performance of your supply chain.
Co-locating these services alongside the storage of your products not only saves money but removes steps in the supply chain. The elimination of transportation time to a packaging facility means you can reduce your lead times and decrease your inventory.
And by having DHL perform all these activities you receive the same visibility and operational excellence that you'd expect from the market leader in contract logistics.

DHL operates a range of services to pack, prepare and customize your products for different markets.
We can assemble finished products from modules and components, and help you implement a postponement strategy. By producing large runs of standardized products and then customizing them for local markets in the downstream supply chain, stockholdings can be minimized and inventory obsolescence reduced. We offer a wide range of postponement services and processes - including tailored packaging and bundling, hardware configuration, software installation, and localization, such as the addition of documentation and labels.
Kitting is the addition of items such as accessories and batteries into the product pack. Pre-assembly is the completion of finished merchandise from component parts, or the pre-programming of products. DHL offers a full range of these services, including materials and order management, component kit build, assembly line operations, packing, shrink-wrapping and blister packs.
We can implement the consolidation, pre-assembly and sequencing of materials flows into the manufacturing process. Line-feeding covers the delivery of assembled components to a production line on a just-in-time or just-in-sequence basis.
Contract packing involves the integration of outsourced packing operations into distribution centers, to increase flexibility and streamline fulfillment. This reduces cost, enhances product visibility and control, and increases speed-to-market. DHL offers a comprehensive co-packing service, including the re-packing of finished products to support product launches, promotions and customization for local markets.
DHL has considerable expertise in readying your products for distribution to a retail environment. This service is ideal for customers wishing to ensure a rapid response to changing market conditions.
Re-work or redress is the customization or modification of products, often to suit a local market. It covers the re-packing of finished products to support product launches and promotions, and can also include re-palletization.
Labeling and tagging
We're able to apply labels, either to the product or its packaging. This includes swing tags, kimball/security tags, RFID tags, price stickers and other promotional labeling.
We perform all activities to fashion garments to make them ready for the shop floor:unpacking and de-shrouding, steam pressing, hanging and folding.
