DHL expands new facility in Japan

Jun '07
DHL, the world's leading express and logistics company inaugurated its new five billion yen (US$41 million) expanded facility at the Kansai International Airport.

The 10,100 sqm DHL Kansai International Airport Gateway, located at the International Cargo Warehouse C, is the largest facility operated by an international express company at the airport.

The event was officiated by Scott Price, CEO, DHL Express – Asia Pacific, and Atsushi Murayama, President of Kansai International Airport Co Ltd, as well as senior executives from both companies.

This latest investment is part of DHL's commitment to invest almost 11 billion yen (US$90 million) in Japan in the next few years, announced at DHL Japan's 35th anniversary celebrations in February this year.

The DHL Kansai International Airport Gateway began operations at the airport's International Cargo Area in July 2003. It plays a critical role in serving DHL's customers throughout the Kansai region in West Japan.

The expansion of the Gateway enables DHL to meet continued strong business growth in Japan, especially in Kansai - a major import center for exports from China – and reflects the important role of Kansai as a conduit of international trade.

“The expansion of the DHL Kansai International Airport Gateway underlines the strong growth that DHL is experiencing in Japan and Asia Pacific. The expanded Gateway complements our other Japan Gateways in Chubu and Narita,” Mr.Price noted.
