The DHL CDG HUB is crucial in DHL’s air logistics strategy. Equipped with modern facilities and a next-generation shipment sorter, it guarantees the continuous and rapid handling of packages. Currently, the CDG HUB provides strategic air links with other DHL hub locations within and outside Europe, such as Leipzig and Brussels airports and Casablanca, Morocco.

In addition, WFS manages onboard truck freight services for the CDG HUB from Leipzig and Brussels, as well as freight reception points for DHL Aviation throughout France, including Orly, Bordeaux, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Nantes, Strasbourg, Toulouse, Basle-Mulhouse and Nice.

Laurent Bernard, VP of Cargo France at WFS, explains: “DHL is a significant customer of WFS in Paris and across our network in France. Our strong partnership and this extension of our warehouse contract clearly show that our service performance satisfies DHL’s high standards. Maintaining this contract is very important to our business in France and will help demonstrate WFS’ capabilities to DHL for wider partnership growth across our global network in the future.”
