The efficient design and management of supply chains involving a number of partners is of great importance in an economy based on the division of labor. The technical term for this is supply chain management – often abbreviated to SCM. One part of SCM is contract logistics – a business model based on contractual, long-term and extensive cooperation between goods manufacturers or traders and logistics service providers. This is exactly what the cooperation between DHL Supply Chain and Iglo is all about. This article is based on the unique List of the 200 largest logistics companies in Germany.

At the turn of the year 2020/2021, DHL Supply Chain will become the exclusive partner of Iglo, a food company specializing in frozen foods.
