Global logistics provider DHL is investing US$108m in an expansion project for its Americas hub at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. The project will provide more gates to accommodate additional aircraft, additional warehouse space, and new equipment for sorting shipments and unloading and reloading planes. The Cincinnati hub is one of three DHL global hubs linking the USA to the rest of DHL’s network across Europe and Asia.
Stephen Fenwick, CEO, DHL Express Americas, said, “This multi-million dollar investment underscores the DHL commitment to the US market and the integral role that our hub here plays in connecting the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky region to our vast global network. The expansion and service enhancements from this investment will provide additional infrastructure and efficiency. This in turn will support the continued growth in international shipments that we’re seeing as well as add to the economic wellbeing of this region.”
The Cincinnati hub processes approximately 46 million international shipments annually, including those bound for the USA, Canada, Mexico and Latin America. It also connects nearly 100 service centers, gateways in Los Angeles and New York, and a hub in Miami to more than 220 countries and territories around the world. The hub currently employs approximately 2,000 members of staff.
