DHL x Fashion

Logistics is the grid that underpins fashion, retail and e-commerce

Working behind the scenes of a fast moving and creative industry like fashion, requires an agile and intelligent approach to delivering global logistics solutions. DHL has been a committed partner to the fashion industry for decades, pioneering tailored solutions to meet the needs of designers and retailers, as well as behind the scenes at some of the world’s most glamorous fashion events.

Working in partnership with key fashion organisations across the globe, including the British Fashion Council (BFC), Council of Fashion Designers of America, Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, the Japan Fashion Week Organization and Copenhagen Fashion Week, DHL provides tailored initiatives to enable fashion businesses to streamline their international logistics, and grow their business sustainably into new markets.

Fashion Forward sustainability

DHL’s long-term mission is to achieve zero emissions in our logistics operations by the year 2050. Through our partnerships we want to highlight the importance of sustainability in fashion and help inspire businesses and consumers with easy to follow recommendations. Here are some of our recent efforts to encourage positive change:

  • Fashion & Environment White Paper - Delivered by DHL: In collaboration with the BFC and NGO, Julie’s Bicycle, we developed an insightful white paper that examines the relationship between fashion and the environment, sharing tangible recommendations to ensure positive fashion remains at the heart of the industry.
  • Drive, Stories of Sustainable Entrepreneurship: This podcast series shines a spotlight on six global fashion entrepreneurs who have built their brands with sustainability in mind; sharing their journey, their successes as well the challenges they have faced to drive sustainable fashion practices. The 2019 podcast series will kick-off with the first episode on October 4, with the 5 remaining episodes to be aired on a bi-weekly basis. Listen out for the trailer which launches on September 27.
  • Upcycle your Style Competition: Fashion lovers are invited to share their best upcycled look for a chance to win an exclusive look created by an eco-conscious designer #REnewYourStyle
