DHL Freight opens logistics centre in Ukraine

DHL Freight has opened a new logistics centre in the Ukraine to serve as a main gateway for its network in Eastern Europe. The 20,000 square-metre complex in Kalinovka, near Kiev, will provide access to the Ukraine, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia.

Served by 140 staff, the facility has 17 docking positions for trucks, with video surveillance systems as part of a security system for the handling and storage area.

Piotr M. Sikorski, managing director DHL Freight Poland & Ukraine, said: “For DHL, the Ukraine is a market with huge development potential. We invested in the new facility in order to assure best-in-class transport and warehouse services for our current customers and to ready ourselves for the continued growth in the Ukraine and Eastern Europe overall.”

As well as strengthening the DHL presence in the Ukraine, the company said its new facility near Kiev would help connect Western Europe with Eastern Europe and the Middle East as part of its road network.

DHL Freight provides a range of less-than-truckload, part-truckload and full truckload shipping options, with its road network in this region stretching from Austria to Russia, and Poland to Dubai and the United Arab Emirates.

Stefano Arganese, chief executive officer for DHL Freight in Central and Eastern Europe and the Middle East, said: “The new center will even better serve our customers and take our freight business to the next level in terms of coverage, transport volumes and cost efficiency. Furthermore it strengthens our supply chain network and allows us to serve international companies transporting goods to and from Eastern Europe.”
