Description of the Organization
Millions of people frequent grocery stores, malls, retail outlets, and pharmacies on a daily basis with the expectation that the products they need will be available. One of the largest Supply Chain organizations in the world works to exceed their customers’ expectations every day to ensure that those products are indeed available, and that company is Exel. Exel is a wholly owned entity of Deutsche Post DHL, the world’s leading logistics group (About Us: Exel, 2014), headquartered in Bonn, Germany. The Americas headquarters for Exel located in Westerville, Ohio provides an extensive range of solutions. Those solutions are provided to customers in multiple sectors, including automotive, consumer, retail, engineering and manufacturing, technology, energy and chemicals, and life sciences and healthcare. They employ nearly 45,000 associates across the United States, Canada, and Latin America in over 120 million square feet of distribution space. Annual revenue for the company has continued to grow year over year with recent figures reaching $4.6 billion in 2013 (About Us: Exel, 2014). The company continues to focus on three key pillars that have been the cornerstone of their Strategy 2015 platform. Those pillars are to be the provider of choice, employer of choice, and the investment of choice. All three of these pillars work together to create a First Choice mentality among each employee from the warehouse worker to the CEO.
