DHL-Ethiopian Logistics Services Gets New Boss

Berhanu Kassa became the new director general of DHL-Ethiopian Airlines Logistics Services, a joint venture company that was formed by Ethiopian Airlines and DHL Global Forwarding. Berhanu, who was the director of the logistics service at Ethiopian Airlines, replaces Pramod Bagalwadi. The company has been building up its strength in the past year, according to Berhanu, who has also served as director of cargo, global sales & services and the country manager of Angola. It has already set up three stations in Addis Abeba Bole International Airport and in the major manufacturing hubs of Hawassa and Bole Lemi industrial parks. “We're planning to launch a fourth station at the Modjo Dry Port by early 2020," he said. "Our stations are strategically located to give us easy access to our customers, allowing us to achieve time and cost efficiency." The two parties signed the joint venture agreement last year following the government’s decision to liberalise key sectors of the economy.
