Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 7
By Fatih Karimov - Trend: Germany's DHL express post company intends to make Iran a postal hub for CIS countries.
DHL holds a 60 percent share of the Iranian post market, Ali Sarrafzadeh, a senior advisor to DHL, said, adding, DHL has taken the decision due to the fact that Iranian airlines are much safer than other Middle Eastern countries and also due to the strategic location of Iran, Fars news agency reported Oct. 7.
In this line, two logistic centers are being established in Tehran that will be inaugurated in the next two years, he added. Therefore, the number of DHL flights to Iran will be increased significantly, he noted.
Unlike other countries in the Middle East, the Iranian market grows rapidly, and for DHL the growth rate of the Iranian market is very important, Sarrafzadeh said.
