DHL

Self-tutoring about corporations: the tutor shares a few finds about DHL.

I noticed the phrase DHL shipping, so looked it up.

As I understand, DHL is part of Deutsche Post DHL Group. Its central headquarters are in Bonn, Germany, but it operates in more than 220 countries, and employs 360,000 people. Apparently, it delivered 1.394 billion parcels last year.

DHL was started in 1969 in San Francisco by Adrian Dalsey, Larry Hillblom and Robert Lynn. Deutsche Post gained controlling interest in 2001, and owned all outstanding shares by the end of 2002.

Brands: Unilever

The tutor shares an observation about some familiar brands.

Just out of the blue, I wondered today, “Who makes Red Rose tea?” Looking at the box, I saw Unilever (denoted by a pattern-filled “U”).

While Unilever’s brands are instantly recognizable, the Unilever name itself may be less heard. Some of its famous brands are Becel (margarine), Axe (deodorant and grooming products), Red Rose (tea), Dove (soap), and Lipton (food products: soups, etc). There are many others.

Though Unilever has many subsidiaries, it’s British-Dutch.

I’ll be sharing more of my observations about consumer goods in future posts:)
