The world's leading logistics company DHL plans to invest nearly RM 1.5 billion (296.7 million Euro) by the year 2020 for the further development of its IT services data centre in Cyberjaya of Malaysia.

The IT Services Data Center has provided critical IT infrastructure, business application development and support initially for the company's Asia Pacific and global operations over the past 20 years.

“The investment which we have made in Cyberjaya demonstrates our commitment towards enhancing our capabilities -- and helping our customers improve their market positions through best-in-class IT infrastructure and skilled talent," said Alexander Pilař, Executive Vice President and Managing Director, IT Services, Deutsche Post DHL Group.

Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), Chief Operating Officer, Dato' Ng Wan Peng said, "We are hurt by the continuation of support from DHL, which reflects its unwavering commitment to Malaysia and its digital transformation agenda. In addition to employment creation, this move will greatly boost and strengthen the digital infrastructure and ecosystem. We look forward to launching the journey ahead with DHL,"

"We started our IT Data Center in Malaysia 20 years ago, occupying a floor in a suburban shopping mall with just 120 staff, facing risks of disruption from flooding to the building's car park," said Yogananthan S, Site Head of IT Services Cyberjaya.

"Over the past 20 years we've focused on not only building up the local IT talent market -- including hiring almost 500 new graduates since 2006 -- but doing so in a way that encourages diversity and equal opportunity for all," added Yoga.

Yoga said our DHL family of divisions offer an unrivalled portfolio of logistics services ranging from national and international parcel delivery, e-commerce shipping and fulfillment solutions, international express, road, air and ocean transport to industrial supply chain management.
