DHL eCommerce opens new Hong Kong fulfilment centre

DHL eCommerce has launched a new Fulfillment Center in Hong Kong catering for growing demand for cross-border products in Asia Pacific, particularly from Greater China.

The centre, located within DHL Supply Chain’s one million square foot Interlink operation, will primarily work to provide overseas e-tailers with fast and flexible shipping solutions to integrate inbound freight, inventory and last mile delivery.

DHL says running products through an established fulfilment centre mitigates risks of customs and regulations delays, and flexible warehousing, closer proximity to the end consumer and last mile options will help e-tailers in the booming e-commerce market.

DHL eCommerce managing director Greater China, Zhi Zheng says: “Cross-border e-commerce is expected to grow to USD 1 trillion by 2020, and with approximately 40% of China’s online consumers buying foreign goods, linking foreign e-tailers with consumers in Greater China with an efficient fulfillment service is crucial.”

DHL eCommerce Asia Pacific chief executive officer, Malcolm Monteiro says the future of e-commerce is in cross-border sales and the key to a borderless digital economy is efficient logistics and fulfilment, saying: “Our new Hong Kong facility adds huge value to our global fulfillment network, catering to the strong inbound growth observed particularly in the Greater China region. This will simplify inventory management and last-mile delivery for retailers, ultimately facilitating their quick and easy global expansion.”
