DHL Express recently expanded its network of US retail locations with two new mobile pop-up stores in Las Vegas, Nevada. The two 2,200 cb ft, 100% off-the-grid, mobile DHL ServicePoints offer a shipping option for the city’s growing number of residents.
DHL states local consumer shipping needs have accelerated significantly and residential demand for international shipping options has substantially increased. The two new units, located at 101 S Rainbow Boulevard in Northwest Las Vegas and 5051 Stewart Avenue in East Las Vegas, are the first two pop-up locations within the greater Las Vegas area.
The new ServicePoints are boosted by a solar-powered system with backup batteries charged at the local service center – helping reduce energy consumption and contributing to the company’s mission to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
The pop-ups’ efficient point-of-sale systems are capable of processing shipments to US destinations as well as any of the 220 countries and territories DHL serves. Supplies such as bubble wrap, packing tape and DHL-branded boxes are available at each mobile unit.
To create these mobile DHL ServicePoint locations, DHL worked in collaboration with Flexetail, a leading designer and builder of mobile shops that offers brands an affordable opportunity to test products, explore new markets and launch new lines.
In addition to these new company-owned stores, over 3,500 independently owned DHL ServicePoint Partner stores continue to play a critical role in the company’s retail strategy within the US market. All locations provide DHL Express international express shipping services (among other brands), global knowledge and expert advice to help businesses reach the international marketplace.
“We have seen shipping demands continue to flourish within the greater Las Vegas area, and with the addition of these two pop-ups, we can offer more convenient shipping options to more local customers than ever before,” said Chet Paul, SVP of Commercial for DHL Express U.S. “Across the US, these innovative mobile stores have addressed the growing needs of our customers, so we’re thrilled to bring this popular option to Las Vegas residents and businesses.”
