DHL, the world’s leading express and logistics compan, announced a collaboration with the German-Jordanian University in a strategic educational partnership. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between DHL Express Jordan and GJU paves the way for a partnership that will provide training and enable knowledge transfer of logistics and supply chain management to students. Through this framework, students will have the opportunity to undertake training and internships, lectures, research, joint workshops and field trips with support from DHL Express Jordan, as part of their training.

“Through this collaboration, DHL is delighted we can leverage our core expertise in logistics to help nurture and develop the capabilities of Jordan’s students.  This initiative is DHL’s way of contributing back to the communities we serve and operate in,” said Mr. Turgay Sarikaya, General Manager, DHL Express Jordan.

The MOU was designed to promote private sector partnerships at various levels and maintain sustainable industry linkages, providing students with first-hand experience by involving its industry partners in study plans and field trips. GJU offers students a full-time work experience by its requirement of conducting local and international industry trainings and internships.

The cooperation between GJU’s logistics department and DHL Express Jordan will provide training opportunities for students of logistics sciences internationally in DHL hubs, offices in Jordan and potentially the DHL Innovation Centre in Bonn. Training will involve at least 160 hours for each student locally, and for 6 months internationally, students will receive a certificate after completion of their internships.
