History of DHL
DHL is a renowned international courier whose abbreviation stands for Dalsey, Hillblom, and Lynn. The courier is part of the parcel and expresses mail division of the German logistics firm Deutsche Post DHL, which acquired them in 2002, the world’s largest logistics firm hauling over 1.3 billion packages per year. On 25 September 1969, Adrian Dalsey, Larry Hillblom, and Robert Lynn incorporated DHL in the United States. Hillblom put up a portion of his student loans to start the company, bringing in his two friends Dalsey and Lynn, as partners, with their surnames’ combined initials as the company name.
