DHL Express announced that it has expanded its operations in Houston, US, with the opening of a service centre facility. The $2.5m investment was primarily driven by heavy demand and international shipment growth from the region’s oil and gas sector.
The new 28,000 sq ft facility can process more than 2,500 shipments per hour, and lies due west of the central business district – serving Houston and surrounding areas for pick-up, delivery and sorting operations of international shipments. The centre will nearly double the local facility capacity for DHL Express in Houston, resulting in earlier delivery times and later drop off cut-off times for international importers and exporters.
“DHL Express is constantly looking for ways to improve and enhance its international express services through investments in our US operations, which is why we are so pleased to accommodate growth and enhance service for one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the US,” said John Fox, Senior Vice President and General Manager for DHL Express.
