DHL Express opens new facilities at Budapest Airport

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

DHL Express has opened new warehouse and office complexes at Budapest Airport.

In a statement sent to Post&Parcel today (14 September), Budapest Airport said that the DHL facilities have  automated sorting systems, and represent the largest air cargo development at the airport today, with a total land area development of just over 60,000 square metres.

“DHL Express has already been present in Hungary for more than 25 years. The new lease agreement between Budapest Airport and DHL Express for another 15 years clearly reflects the commitment of Deutsche Post DHL Group to Hungary and the airport,” said Zoltán Bándli, Managing Director, DHL Express Hungary.

“The 6,000 m2 warehouse capacity will give DHL space to accommodate the volume growth of our business, with the new state-of-the-art sorting technology, which includes fully automatic shipment processing, allowing us to process more than 6,000 pieces per hour, which is three times our current capacity.

“As DHL Global Forwarding and DHL Freight are also located at Budapest Airport, synergies between the three business units will strengthen, and contribute to a more effective operation, further improvement of services, and development of cross dock businesses. The move will also mean a quality improvement in working conditions, and further efficiency gains in warehouse operations.”

More than 600 employees will be based at the two new express complexes, which are located in the area next to Terminal 1.

The next freight phase of Budapest Airport’s BUD:2020 Development Programme will be the development of Cargo City next to Terminal 2, due to be completed in 2019.

As Post&Parcel reported yesterday, Budapest Airport handled a record volume of 72,161 tonnes of air cargo from January to July 2017, an increase of 19.6% on 2016.
