DHL Express will invest $185M in US operations to support increased shipping volumes: 3 takeaways

DHL Express plans to spend $185 million to add new infrastructure, technology and workers to its U.S. operations over the next year, according to DC Velocity.

Here are three things to know.

1. The company is already working on a $108 million project at its hub at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, adding 45 acres of land for new storage and warehouse space. Next year, the company will improve its automated sorting capability and add 40 new reload positions to the location.

2. DHL will spend another $20 million over two years to upgrade and expand the size of its ground fleet — adding more fuel-efficient vehicles — at its JFK airport facility in New York City, according to the report.

3. The company will also allocate an additional $60 million to better handle growing shipping volumes in the U.S., by expanding existing facilities and opening new ones, purchasing new equipment and upgrading technology and security systems.
