THE SECRETS OF SUCCESS

Chris Reid was pretty much your typical kiwi kid, but in 1975, something would happen that changed his world and impacted millions.

Reid, with his trusty Austin 1300 car, became one of the first courier drivers for a tiny company in London calling itself DHL.

Pulling in mates from New Zealand, Australia and the UK, Reid and his gritty band of colonials helped turn DHL’s London office into the heart of a global empire that today operates jets, helicopters, boats and drones.

How did they do it?

This inspirational story of how Reid battled governments and international laws to make courier services legal shows that you can’t stop an idea whose time has come...

About the Author :

Chris Reid left New Zealand in 1974 on his big OE, expecting to return a year later and resume his career as a lawyer. Instead, he spent nearly two decades on a rollercoaster ride around the globe as a pioneer in the courier industry. Now a business consultant, he reflects on his journey and the lessons to be learnt from it.

Review :

Like previous great biographies of Nike ("Swoosh"), Subaru ("Where The Suckers Moon") and more latterly Apple's Steve Jobs, it quickly becomes apparent in this book that behind every big brand is a great story. Make no mistake, DHL is a big brand. Founded by three Americans including the ill-fated Larry Hillblom, the 'H' in DHL, we discover in Fly By Night that the brand could have been consigned to history as a small US logistics company had it not been for the infusion of some Aussies and Kiwis who brought with them a 'can do' attitude. They took DHL from essentially a bicycle document delivery operation in London to a full blown courier operation covering the world. While others have written about "billionaire genius" Larry Hillblom, the truth is Larry couldn't have done it without Chris Reid and his team. The real story of DHL, the real secret of its success, is contained in these pages and it's an inspirational story. Highly recommended - Ian Wishart, Investigate Magazine
