DHL Express has announced that it has invested $2.85m in a new, 30,000 sq ft service centre facility in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Relocated from Canonsburg, this new location will accommodate anticipated international trade growth in the local manufacturing, technology, healthcare, e-commerce and education industries.
Located at 563 Napor Boulevard, the new service centre is 30 miles closer to Pittsburgh’s city centre. The new 30,000 sq ft facility, is 10,000 sq ft larger than the previous location and aims to boost productivity and efficiency.
“This new facility enables us to maximise our capabilities and provide efficient, high-quality service so customers are best equipped to compete in the global marketplace,” said Nemer Abohasen, VP and General Manager of the Midwest Area for DHL Express US.
The new facility will process shipments ranging from documents and small parcels to palletised freight. It will serve areas north to Cranberry Township, east to Monroeville/New Stanton, south to Washington and west to the Pennsylvania-Ohio state line.
Staffed by 60 employees, the new service centre will operate 35 vans and trucks for pickup and delivery. It will accommodate more such vehicles for couriers to load packages from an interior conveyor system, which includes a raised catwalk for safety and sorting efficiency. It also features three additional dock doors and new equipment for aircraft container (ULD) handling.
