Issue 27, July 3, 2008
As the 2008 Olympic Games will be held from August 8 through August 24 this year in Beijing, we wish to share with you our plans in preparation for the logistics operations during this very special period.
To make this memorable event successful, the Government will be implementing special arrangement and restriction in traffic control as well as airport operations in Beijing and adjacent cities. While the Olympic Games period is in August the special measures are in effect a few months before and shortly after the Games.
To ensure that there is minimal impact on our operations and services to our customers, our dedicated project team has been set up since March and has been collecting information from all related parties to establish contingency plans accordingly.
Please refer to the Beijing Olympics DHL Logistics Contingency Plan-JuL 08 located on our external website at: http://www.cn.dhl.com/publish/cn/en/information/excellence/Olympics_pack.high.html
The major changes in this month’s update include:
We will keep you updated on a bi-weekly basis and more frequently as we get closer to the Games.
Please be advised that there is a Dangerous Goods Embargo prior to the Games. As per embargo instruction from CAAC (Civil Aviation Administration of China) and Police, Shanghai, Beijing, Tianjin, ShenYang, QingHuang Dao, Qingdao airports are forbidden to handle dangerous goods (except of very limited special approval), during the time from 01 July to 30 September, 2008.
We welcome your input and cooperation during this special period and are committed to ensure minimal impact on our service levels.
Please do not hesitate to contact your local account manager if you have any questions regarding the Olympic Games Contingency Plan. We look forward to working closely with you and your team to support you in achieving your goals in 2008 and beyond.
