DHL expands new facility in Kentucky

May '07
New Facility Centrally Located Near Louisville International Airport Enhances Services for Shipping to and from the Region.

DHL, the world's leading global express delivery and logistics company, announced the opening of a new facility near the Louisville International Airport in Kentucky. DHL has invested $2.7 million in the new service center facility, consolidating all local operations to enhance services for DHL customers shipping to and from the region.

The new, 64,000-sq.-ft. service center combines a facility east of Louisville and DHL's previous operations near the airport to one service center strategically located across from Standiford Field. The location is home to DHL's local pickup, delivery and sorting operations, and provides a base for local sales employees.

"DHL is continually looking for ways to improve and augment service for customers through strategic investments in our U.S. operations," said John Cameron, executive vice president of Operations, for DHL. "Customers shipping to and from the Louisville region will benefit from earlier deliveries, and extending our pickup cutoff times will make it even more convenient for shippers using DHL in the area."

The pickup and delivery footprint for the new facility includes cities in and around the Louisville, Ky. metro area, east to Indiana including Austin, and as far South as cities along the Tennessee border. The new Louisville service center will handle a wide varietyof shipments - including domestic and international parcels as well as palletized, loose-load and container freight.
