Adrian Dalsey, Larry Hillblom en Robert Lynn, three ambitious entrepreneurs from San Francisco, founded DHL in 1969. They initially transported customs documents by air. This dramatically reduced the clearance time for cargo shipments. Whilst the first flights mainly ran between San Francisco and Honolulu, the network was later expanded to all corners of the globe. DHL has been the global market leader in the field of international express delivery and logistics since 2013.
