KNHB announces a logistics partnership with DHL Parcel
Dragflick Newsdesk : DHL Parcel announced today that it has become a logistics partner of the KNHB and the Dutch Women’s Team. In addition to hockey, they also associate with the Dutch national women’s teams for football, volleyball and handball. Never before has a sponsor stepped so big into women’s sport.
The partnership is called #SameDream, which indicates the joint pursuit of top performance. In view of the tense international situation, the announcement, which took place at the largest and greenest sorting center in the Benelux in Zaltbommel, had a modest character.
With the sponsorship, DHL contributes to realizing the right preconditions and circumstances for women’s teams to achieve their sports performance at the highest level. Dutch women’s sport is experiencing enormous growth in performance and popularity at the international top level.
DHL Parcel recognizes this, which itself has experienced enormous growth in recent years as a deliverer of online orders. This match in ambition and motivation to be one of the best is summarized under the heading #SameDream.
In addition, DHL offers the athletes the necessary support and support to make their dream come true. The KNHB is very proud to welcome DHL as a new partner within the field of hockey and the Orange ladies in particular.
The women’s teams are happy with the new agreement. Jan Dirk van der Zee, director of women’s football at the KNVB, speaks on behalf of the four sports associations:
“Growing and breaking new ground is what we recognize in a company like DHL Parcel. We – and I am talking about the Nevobo, the KNHB, the NHV and the KNVB – are a good match; hands-on and focused on being the best.
This collaboration aims to provide a new generation of girls and women with strength, energy, positivism and inspiration. It is wonderful that DHL is open to this unprecedented partnership with four sports federations and is pursuing the same dream with us.”
Michel Clausing, CCO of DHL Parcel Benelux:
“The women’s teams show that you can win a lot with hard work, but that you also have to take smart new paths, like DHL Parcel does with digital features and green delivery options. The connection with national teams is also prompted by the fact that DHL Parcel has traditionally been deeply rooted in Dutch society.
”This sponsorship and partnership is a perfect fit, with which all parties can benefit and in which the public will hopefully experience the result with great sporting performances.”
To inform the employees and customers of DHL Parcel in the ups and downs of the athletes on their way to their successes, one of the players from each team acts as an ambassador. From the Orange Ladies that is Pien Sanders.
“I am proud to be an ambassador for a collaboration between such a large international company like DHL and these four wonderful sports teams. All five of us have the ambition to be world top, and we have all built up a good track record in recent years. I hope that with this collaboration we can inspire even more young girls to want to get the best out of themselves. In and outside the sport”, says Sanders.
