DHL Freight: we are adding another important hub in Eastern Europe

DHL Freight opens a new logistics terminal in the Bulgarian capital Sofia.

As DHL Freight is celebrating its 25th anniversary in the country, the new terminal replaces the old location to process the increased logistics volume and further ensure Deutsche Post DHL Group’s high-quality standards of sustainable services.

“With the new DHL Freight terminal, we are adding another important hub in Eastern Europe for road freight services, especially for providing fast and easy access to logistics solutions to our customers in the Sofia region,” said Uwe Brinks, CEO DHL Freight. “Our goal is to improve and modernize our logistics service constantly and make the entire supply chain more environmentally friendly.”

The building is equipped with new technologies and modern warehouse software to expand further the logistic capacities that manage all services. Furthermore, the terminal offers various capabilities for X-Dock activities with eleven automated and two specialized ramps for vans, storage of ADR goods, bonded storage, and a logistics area of 3000m2 high racking storage for more than 6000 pallets. In addition, the new facility has all the essential transport connections to Sofia that allow smooth and fast transport of goods throughout the region. Besides, allocated parking spaces enable a well-regulated dispatch of all trucks to ensure a simplified loading and unloading of shipments. Overall, DHL is creating more than 100 workplaces on-site with its renewed location in Sofia.

As activities to fight climate change have become some of the most important topics of today, DHL is committed to provide sustainable logistic solutions that will reduce all logistic-related emissions to net-zero by 2050. With the new facility in Sofia, DHL invests in sustainable technology, alternative drives and sustainable fuels. Moreover, modern climate systems minimize and fully control the use of energy sources. Additional passive cooling measures, low consumption energy-efficient HVAC units, and modern heat recovery ventilation systems also contribute to reducing the environmental impact.

The new construction of the terminal in Sofia marks 25 years of DHL Freight operating as leading logistic expert in Bulgaria.
