Dubai, UAE: June 5, 2013: Mission accomplished. DHL, the leading global logistics provider, has completed its most top secret delivery to date with the shipment of the latest generation Mercedes S-Class to its international premiere in Hamburg, held earlier this month.
Transported straight from the Mercedes-Benz plant in Stuttgart to the city’s Finkenwerder quarter, the cloaked luxury sedan was flown in an A300-600 DHL freight aircraft for its global unveiling to hundreds of customers, retailers and journalists on May 15, 2013. DHL’s crew members, together with security staff at the Mercedes-Benz plant and a special camouflage system for the car, ensured that the operation’s extremely demanding security requirements were met.
DHL has worked in partnership with Mercedes-Benz for many years. The DHL business units deliver logistics solutions that comply with the specific demands of this long-established automotive brand, including just-in-time delivery for production facilities or spare parts logistics.
