DHL 1m facility

DHL Supply Chain has started construction of a new distribution centre near Bonn for its customer Eaton, the global specialist in power management.

DHL Supply Chain is creating a 35,000 sq m highly automated storage facility. The site will commence operations from the beginning of 2019.

“The construction start for the new warehouse in Rheinbach is another important step in our strategic partnership, in which DHL is building and managing three integrated, high-performance distribution centers for Eaton in Europe,” explains Karsten Schwarz, CEO Germany & Alps DHL Supply Chain.

Over the next few years, DHL will support Eaton’s European electrical business from three distribution centres in Germany, the United Kingdom and the Czech Republic. The new site in the UK began operating for Eaton at the beginning of 2018 and a modernization and expansion of the Czech site is currently in progress.

The plant in Rheinbach allows fast turnaround times to European core markets with its connection to nearby DHL Freight and DHL Parcel Hubs and is geared to the needs of many industries.
