DHL eCommerce launches Hong Kong fulfilment centre
The fulfillment centre is located within DHL Supply Chain’s one million sq. ft. Interlink operation, and adds to DHL’s global fulfilment network in the US, Mexico, India, Europe and Australia.
“Consumer expectations for a quick and accurate delivery are the same across the world, and merchants must understand the importance of providing an outstanding delivery experience for their customers, in order to get them back to shopping on their website,” said Zhi Zheng, Managing Director, Greater China, DHL eCommerce.
“Cross-border e-commerce is expected to grow to $1trn 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.”
Malcolm Monteiro, Asia Pacific CEO, DHL eCommerce, added: “The future growth of e-commerce lies in cross-border sales, and the key to a borderless digital economy is efficient logistics and fulfillment.
“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.”
