DHL Express Finishes New Facility Construction At Heathrow
The Airport Property Partnership, a JV between Segro and Aviva Investors, completed construction for DHL Express UK’s new south east operation and head office at Heathrow. DHL will relocate to the new 150k SF facility from its smaller premises at APP’s Orbital Park, Heathrow, and will house 750 employees who will manage DHL Express shipments for the south east of England. Designed around the DHL parcel sorting machinery to optimise its efficiency, the site will bring together DHL’s Distribution Centre, Service Centre and Head Office in one purpose-built facility.
DHL Express’ capacity will increase from 6,000 items per hour to 28,000 per hour, allowing the company to respond to the demand in international shipping e-commerce.
