Where there’s a will, we are the way’, says DHL
DHL Express, the world’s leading international express services provider, has unveiled its campaign ‘DHL is the Way’, for this year’s Hero Indian Super League (ISL). This campaign marks the fourth year of partnership with ISL, the world’s fourth largest football league. The campaign highlights that aspirations can become reality, and how DHL traverses the globe to help these aspirations come true. It encapsulates the role DHL Express plays as an ‘Enabler of Global Trade’, and is aligned with ISL’s commitment for enabling the Indian talent to go global in the international football scene.
A television commercial has been developed as a part of the campaign, and is conceptualized by The Digital Street, A Social Street Group Company. It shows the endearing relationship between a father and his injured son. How the father goes out of his way to get a shoe autographed by a famous football player.

The commercial highlights how DHL does not only deliver shipments but also delivers joy, delight and most importantly hope.
