DHL’s redeveloped DC at Terminal 2 DXB has significantly increased the capacity of shipments managed every hour and strengthened DHL’s regional hub operations from Dubai.

The 13,100 sqm facility, which is located in the Cargo Terminal at DXB, has the capacity to manage up to 5,000 shipments per hour, serving nearly 70,000 customers across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

The new facility enables consolidated export, transit and import operations with a customs’ clearance and hold area that will feed inter-continental and region-wide air-and land-network distribution.

An automated conveyor system with dual-view x-ray screening of parcels, image-capture technology and an automatic bar-code parcel sorting system enables the delivery of more than 120,000 shipments a day.

“The expansion of our facility at Terminal 2 in Dubai is the latest investment by DHL to support economic growth in the country and wider region by facilitating global trade to and from our growing hub in the UAE,” says Bachi Spiga, head of operations, Middle East and North Africa, DHL.
