With this understanding DHL Trinidad has collaborated with FashionTT to assist in developing the local fashion industry through exportation.
This world-renowned shipping company has shown tremendous commitment to the fashion industry by providing a speedy response, excellent quality and convenient delivery for industry demands, especially in this era of multiple sales channels and online retailing. DHL has also developed logistics solutions to meet the challenging needs of the dynamic fashion sector.

Partnering with DHL will help in creating greater avenues for our designers meet the needs of the international markets.”
