New $6.2m Dallas Metroplex facility opened by DHL

DHL has opened a new $6.2 million 50,000 square foot facility in the East Dallas area – providing international shipments ranging from envelopes and small parcels to palletised and containerized freight.

The express firm says the company’s second in Carrollton, Dallas, reflects the growth in shipments from businesses in the vicinity that trade internationally as well as a steady growth in e-commerce among businesses of all sizes.

DHL Express general manager in the Southeast of the US, Chet Paul says: “Our new location in the Dallas metroplex will provide our customers with even greater convenience for their international shipping needs.

“They’ll have more time to prepare their packages for pickup, receive their deliveries earlier, and they have the option of dropping off shipments right at the facility.

“This new location is one more example of how DHL makes targeted investments focused on infrastructure, people and technology, so that we can continually provide the highest level of customer service.”

The state-of-the-art facility processes thousands of packages daily through its fully automated sort system and incorporates environmental features such as LED lighting in the 45,000 square foot warehouse, on/off sensors for lighting to conserve electricity and electric forklifts.

The Carrollton facility employs 70 workers, including 45 couriers handling pickup and delivery. Among the major customers the facility will serve are technology companies as well as leading e-commerce businesses.
