DHL 1m facility

DHL Supply Chain has announced its plans to build a distribution and warehouse park in Dorchester County, South Carolina.

DHL Supply Chain has invested $100m and purchased 125 acres, now called DHL Commerce Park, to construct three new buildings with a total area of 1.7m sq ft. The facility will open in stages, and it is expected that the first building will be completed in Q1 2020.

“South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) is seeing significant distribution centre and warehousing activity in our region, driven by port users who rely on our marine and inland facilities to handle growing import volumes bound for consumers across the Southeast,” said Jim Newsome, SCPA president and CEO. “DHL will play an important role in supporting the logistics needs of multiple port-related business segments, and we look forward to the opening of their new facility.”

“With a favourable geographic location and robust port and infrastructure assets, South Carolina offers unparalleled global connectivity,” said Bobby Hitt, South Carolina Secretary of Commerce.
