August 25th 2015, Kuala Lumpur -- DHL, the world’s leading logistics services provider, announced today that it would be the official logistics partner of the 8th Kuala Lumpur Eco Film (KLEFF) festival by providing support for all delivery operations required for the festival.

EcoKnights seeks to enlighten and educate Malaysians on environmental issues that affect them and their daily lives. One of the ways is through the festival as well as by collaborating with a reputable brand that participates in the global effort to overcome environmental challenges”.

It gives us great pleasure to play such an important role in supporting the festival and ensuring that festival-goers are able to enjoy the local environment-themed film festival in Malaysia.

This helps to engages our employees and foster a better partnership,” said Christopher Ong, Managing Director of DHL Express Malaysia and Brunei.
