DHL, is and American company that is a division of a German logistics company (we could call it a global enterprise) that specializes in international shipping, courier services and transportation. They deliver over a billion parcels a year. As a resident of California when I think of DHL, I think of bright yellow trucks with a red logo zipping through traffic wherever I am.
Only recently did I discover the DHL Global Connectedness Index (GCI) is developed with the NYU/Stern School of Business. (GCI) This report, although new to me, has been in existence for over ten years. According to its introduction the GCI offers “a thorough examination of the state of globalization based on analysis of trade, capital, information, and people flows at the global, regional, and national levels. Each issue builds on the previous report as well as decades of globalization research.”
Interested in what they have to say in the 2021 update? Find the information using this link to their Key Take Aways: Ten Take Aways Dive into the report and discover why they are optimistic about globalization overall even though they see vulnerabilities that need to be addressed. I’m already looking forward to seeing what the 2022 report tells us.
