DHL Express’ expansion of its hub facility at Miami International Airport doubles warehouse space and sorting capacity with twice the load positions for conveyable packages.
The investment is part of a $360 million plan to increase volume capacity within the DHL Express Americas network by nearly 30% by the end of next year.
“Our Miami Hub has always been a key gateway into South and Central America and the Caribbean, and with the new investments and flights, it’s fantastic to see us even more connected to the rest of the world,” DHL Express Americas CEO Mike Parra said. “This is all part of our continual drive to expand and improve our infrastructure, modernize and grow our air fleets and establish new routes. The overall results are improved flexibility, reliability and service for our customers’ ever-growing international shipping needs.”
DHL Express said the upgrades will allow it to add flights to and from Europe, Asia Pacific, and South America. The company now operates an average of 193 weekly flights (arrivals and departures) from the Miami hub. — Transport Topics
