The Journal-News posed several questions to Colin Beynon, vice president and general manager of DHL’s CVG hub. Here’s what he had to say:

Q: What’s the biggest challenge facing the company and other such similar companies and how is DHL uniquely positioned to address that challenge?

A: “Tariffs can have a significant impact on the U.S. economy and employment. We see in our daily operations the many benefits that international trade brings in terms of social development and increased prosperity, and we believe that no market benefits from protectionist measures. However because we have been in business for 50 years and operate in over 220 countries in territories, we are accustomed to dealing with changing rules and regulations. As a facilitator of trade, it is our job to help our customers navigate the complexities of cross-border trade and to comply with all trade regimes. We continue to monitor the situation and to work constructively with the respective authorities to ensure compliance with all applicable tariffs.”

Q: Some job seekers are concerned about the limits of advancement within a company or an industry. To what degree can your employees advance from entry-level roles to be promoted to greater positions within DHL?

A: “At CVG, after six months of employment as a Ramp or Warehouse Agent, employees in good standing are eligible to apply for any position in the DHL network. A significant amount of DHL managers, directors and executives started out working as a Ramp or Warehouse Agent. At CVG many of our leaders started out as Warehouse & Ramp agents, from there they advanced to supervisor, manager and further on in their career and as part of our robust onboarding program new employees will get to meet them and ask them questions about their career and opportunities. DHL has a proud history of investing in our employees and promoting from within.”

Q: What’s the most prevalent roadblock that DHL encounters when it comes to hiring and what can job seekers do to remedy that situation?

A: “Ensuring candidates have the information they need about the available positions, and any restrictions we may have. Candidates can go to our recruitment website: to learn more about the roles, the physical requirements, and any restrictions to hiring due to being on airport property.”
