DHL launches new logistics site at Hanover Airport

DHL Express Germany has officially opened its new €32.5m site at Hanover Airport. The facility consolidates two production sites that were previously separate: the service station, from which DHL Express dispatched time definite deliveries for national road and international air networks; and the gateway for day-definite shipments that were transported across the European road network.

“With this new highly modernized site we now have an overall production space of about 6,000 square metrEs. This represents a doubling of the space previously available. Apart from that we have integrated a fully automated sort that is able to process 6,000 parcels per hour,” said Wolfgang P. Albeck, Chairman of the Divisional Board of DHL Express Germany.

“This allows us to harmonize production processes for the different service offerings in a way that all three shipment flows can be processed simultaneously by the same system.”

The consolidation also eliminates the need of transit traffic between the two sites.

The logistics centre has four “fingers” with direct loading and unloading capabilities for delivery trucks. Express shipments are transported directly to the relevant gate via the sort, so that drivers can load the vehicle with less physical effort.
