DHL REPORTS DOUBLE-DIGIT ASIAN GROWTH
DHL reported continued double-digit percentage increases in its
Asia/Pacific and Mideast business in 1998, including gains of more than 30
percent in parcel revenues in China.
DHL said the gains came despite "the most difficult trading environment
in a decade."
Air express deliveries of samples, prototypes, spare parts and finished
goods from Asia to the U.S. provided the strongest trade flows, with a
revenue increase of more than 15 percent, DHL said.
