DHL announced the opening of a state-of-the-art facility in Moonachie, New Jersey (Bergen County). With a $19m investment, the new DHL Express service center significantly increases capacity, providing local shippers with earlier deliveries and later pickup cut-off times in New Jersey metropolitan areas.
The expansion of DHL’s operations in Moonachie comes as a response to the growing demand for B2C and B2B e-commerce shipments, both locally and across the United States. By splitting the shipping volume with the company’s existing facility near the Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), DHL aims to better serve customers in the region.
Strategically located at 5 Garden Street, the new facility has 45,000 sq ft of warehousing and office space. It features upgraded material handling equipment with the capacity of processing 4,550 pieces per hour, along with 57 positions for vehicles to load and unload shipments around its conveyable sort system. Recently, in July 2023, DHL Express announced the opening of its Americas region hub based at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). With a focus on sustainability, the $84.5m investment further strengthens the company’s connections and service capabilities between the U.S. and key global markets, increasing capacity, speeding transit times, and adding resilience to its network.
“With the holiday shipping season approaching, this new facility could not have come at a better time, enabling us to optimize our operations to deliver fast, convenient services to our customers in the New Jersey metro areas. We are committed to investing in New Jersey and the businesses that rely on reaching global markets, helping them achieve even greater levels of business success.” says Reiner Wolfs, VP and General Manager for DHL Express, Northeast U.S.
The facility manages time-definite international shipments to and from the 220 countries and territories covered by DHL Express. With 90 workers supporting the local operation, the facility is well-equipped to handle the growing volume of shipments efficiently and effectively.
