ICS: DHL has been a customer of ICS for more than a decade. Over the years, ICS helped DHL manage its risks more effectively, across business divisions through the implementation of various tamper-indicative solutions.

DHL Global Forwarding SA brought a sensitive customer situation to ICS. ‘Out of season’ high-end, designer apparel needed to be returned to the Italian manufacturer. The reverse logistics chain involves cartons containing the garments and many hands along the chain. These cartons needed to be secured to prevent pilfering while in transit. ICS supplied an authenticated security packaging tape to DHL which, in its simplicity, gave the Italian supplier peace of mind that the goods were returned as expected and it boosted DHL’s image in the eyes of their customer for providing a cost effective solution which would help to identify the point of liability in the event of an incident.
