DHL right in the heart of Texas
17 / 03 / 2015
DHL has opened a service centre facility in Houston, Texas, mainly to serve the oil and gas sector.
The $2.5m, 28,000 sq ft facility can process more than 2,500 shipments per hour, nearly double the existing capacity and will allow for earlier delivery times and later drop off times.
DHL Express says it has seen an uptick in emergency shipping of machinery parts and replacement tools.
The facility will handle anything from international small parcels to palletised and container freight.
The new facility is to the west of the city centre. DHL Express also has a Service Center north of the city in Humble, Texas, an aircraft ramp at George Bush Intercontinental Airport and its US Customer Finance Support Center.
