DHL opened a new service center, its second facility in the Denver Metropolitan Area. With the $9.6m investment, DHL Express now has a location closer to the commercial core in downtown Denver, enabling earlier deliveries and increased shipment capacity for importers and exporters.
Located near Denver’s main north-south artery at 10075 E 40th Ave., the new DHL Service Point includes nearly 56,000 square feet of combined warehouse and office space, along with 60 positions for vehicles to load and unload shipments around its conveyable sort system.
The facility is in addition to the existing DHL service center at 26200 E 75th Ave., which is within the Denver International Airport. The company’s continued investment in the market reflects the growing demand for shipping and logistics services within the region’s technology, manufacturing, and industrial sectors.
“Denver is a thriving area with a diverse mix of industries and one of the fastest growing international airports, making it an ideal location for global trade. As the market grows, DHL is committed to growing with it and providing our customers the highest, most efficient level of service. Our investment in this new strategically located and advanced facility in Denver reflects our commitment to international trade and the growing needs of customers.” says Aaron Jones, VP and GM, Mountain / Southwest Area for DHL Express U.S.
Staffed by 55 dedicated couriers and operational personnel, and with an advanced material handling system, the new facility can process up to 5,025 pieces per hour. The facility is also equipped to eventually introduce electric pickup and delivery vehicles. It’s all part of Deutsche Post DHL Group’s sustainability roadmap, which targets 60% of its global delivery fleet to be electrically powered by 2030.
The new facility handles U.S. domestic as well as time-definite international shipments to and from the 220 countries and territories served by DHL. It also offers another convenient Service Point for customers to drop off and pick up shipments locally.
