Vincent Yong is going to be the new MD of Indonesia for DHL Global Forwarding. According to a statement DHL say that Southeast Asia veteran Yong is “no stranger to complicated situations”.
The company explained: “As Chief Operating Officer of DHL Global Forwarding Thailand, Yong steered his team through political upheaval in 2006, catastrophic floods in 2011 and numerous changes to the country’s transport infrastructure – significantly expanding the business and consolidating operations in a 100,000-sqft Multimodal Hub at Suvarnabhumi Airport in the process.”
Yong added: “My time in Thailand saw us go from one ‘adventure’ to another – which helped me develop a practical understanding of challenges; from air and ocean logistics operations to crisis management, security, and overall macroeconomic current affairs – and will prove particularly useful in managing our dynamic business operations in Indonesia.
“In addition, my most recent role as Regional Head of Technology leads to my strong belief that technology will be a powerful proponent in propelling Indonesia to the next level.”
Speaking of the environment that DHL is working in, Yong concluded “As Indonesia continues to invest in technology and infrastructure — like its Mass Rapid Transit network and expanded airport terminals — we expect the costs of trade and doing business to further ease. Moreover, as the world’s fourth most populous country, Indonesia still holds vast potential for growth in domestic consumption despite slowing growth in imports and exports alike. I’m looking forward to strengthening DHL’s competitive advantage in this fast-evolving market.”
