To prove that DHL Import Express is the safest choice when you need to import things quickly from overseas markets, Clemenger BBDO, Sydney took out an ad in the Shanghai Business Daily and sent it to small business owners in Australia. The ad (the only English in the entire paper) clearly stated that DHL would have a copy in their hands within 3 days. We then put our own import service to the test. All copies were successfully delivered within three days with a staggering 60% arriving on day two. The Chinese translates as: This message will be sent to Australian import customers, we hope you'll be doing business with them soon.

It's a good idea. It could have been far more interesting though.
