MANILA, Philippines — International express service provider DHL Express is teaming up with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to support the growth of the micro, small and medium enterprise (MSME) sector and encourage more international business opportunities.

DHL Express said the partnership seeks to provide different market expansion opportunities to all clients of DTI’s Negosyo Centers.

“Our strong partnership with DTI supports our aim to help MSMEs harness opportunities presented by the growth of cross-border e-commerce. Through our presence in over 220 countries and territories and combined with our logistic expertise, MSMEs can truly leverage our global network to grow their businesses,” said Eric Queppet, head of commercial for DHL Express Philippines.

DHL is offering all customers of DTI Negosyo Centers a special 10 percent discount on published tariff rates through promo codes valid until Aug. 30 of next year.

The promo codes displayed at all 129 DTI Negosyo Centers nationwide can be used on shipment bookings via the MyDHL+ website.

“The MSME sector in our country has produced many creative and proudly Filipino products that deserve a place in the global market. Whether through traditional or online selling, DHL Express is making it easier for MSME businesses to thrive through innovation and digitalization, such as with our Phygital Program,” Queppet said.

DHL Express’ Phygital Program combines the strongest aspects of both online and offline settings to enable a far more comprehensive and satisfying customer experience. “DHL Express’ Phygital program makes it more convenient for MSMEs to expand their business transactions overseas by providing them with special rates in consideration of the current situation,” DTI regional operations group undersecretary Blesila Lantayona said.

“This initiative also translates to more opportunities for our 129 full-service Negosyo Centers to assist the MSMEs to thrive and even scale up their businesses. This collaboration will surely benefit more MSMEs, and we look forward to having the program available in more Negosyo Centers in the future,” Lantayona said.
