DHL Enterprise Software Solutions is Growing and Has Opened New Office in Prague

DHL Enterprise Software Solutions (DHL ESS), DHL’s first R&D unit dedicated to the development and implementation of its road freight Transport Management System (TMS), has announced that its new branch office will be opened in Prague.

The office was officially inaugurated in the beginning of October and will assist the Sofia team with transforming and consolidating IT systems in DHL Freight, the overland transport division of Deutsche Post DHL.

“DHL ESS plays a fundamental role in our Freight Transformation program, aiming at harmonizing the existing operational, financial and reporting processes and replace the legacy systems with state-of-the art standards operating procedures and technology.

Our recently established DHL ESS team is an essential part of our Transformation agenda and plays a pivotal role for the success of our company. It is great to see our young and dynamic team in Bulgaria and their engagement. We are therefore expanding the DHL ESS presence also in Prague and I am convinced this will strengthen our ESS team and will accelerate the success of our Transformation program”, says Stefano Arganese, Chief Digital Officer DHL Freight.

  • high level of automation
  • increased efficiency
  • and a reduced carbon footprint

Ivelin Ivanov, Director of Development at DHL ESS, who will also lead the team in Prague, added: “The opening of the new office is a clear sign of confidence in our entire team. In the last 2 years we have been working entirely on TMS and can show great results already. The system operates in France. It will also be launched in Turkey at the beginning of 2020 and all other European DHL Freight countries over the next three years. Since 2017, the DHL ESS team has grown 6 times. It is expected to increase by more 40%, mostly Java developers, as well as experts dealing with QA Automation”.
