DHL Expands Operations In Charlotte, North Carolina


Plantation, Fla. -- November 27, 2006
DHL Global Forwarding Relocates to New Facility More Than Twice the Size of Existing Site

DHL Global Forwarding, part of the logistics division of DHL, today announced plans to expand its Charlotte, NC operations by moving to larger facilities located near Charlotte International Airport and U.S. Customs.

The 52,000 square-foot site, located at 4925 Sirona Drive, Suite 300, Charlotte, NC 28273 combines the now-integrated operations of DHL Danzas Air & Ocean and Exel Freight Management, each of which previously did business at separate locations in Charlotte. Open for business December 4, the new facility will house DHL Global Forwarding’s Charlotte-based air and ocean freight forwarding, customs brokerage and warehousing operations. The new site will be more than twice the size of the company’s current operation.

By being situated closer to the airport and customs facilities, DHL Global Forwarding will be able to expedite shipment handling and collection of air and ocean shipments moving to and from the United States, as well as the processing and clearance of customer goods entering the country. Charlotte is the company’s only station in the Carolinas to handle both international air and ocean consignments.

The new site will also have 38,000 square feet of warehouse space - more than twice the capacity of the existing building. The larger space will give DHL Global Forwarding the flexibility to manage more of its own warehousing services in-house, including the needs of the growing number of small to mid-size companies requiring these services.

“We continue to experience accelerating demand for our Charlotte-based services as the Carolinas take on increased prominence in the country’s international trade and transport system,” said Dominique von Orelli, District Manager, DHL Global Forwarding. "Our new facility, with dramatically increased warehouse and office space, will provide us with the resources needed to stay ahead of our customers’ ever-expanding logistics needs.

The relocation marks DHL Global Forwarding’s second expansion in the Carolinas in the past four months. In late August, the company announced it was expanding operations in Charleston, S.C.
