New sorting center for DHL Express in Leipzig
Oct 13, 2016: DHL opened the new sorting center at its express hub in Leipzig. This would allow sorting of bulkier and heavier shipments on a fully automated basis. The EUR 230 million investment to expand the European hub has enhanced processing capacity of DHL close to 50 percent to 150,000 shipments per hour. This has also managed to create 1,300 jobs since work began on the expansion, thus bringing the total number of people employed by DHL at the hub to around 4,900."The successful launch of our expanded hub and the new sorting facility is a further step that reinforces the importance of Leipzig as our main European express hub," said Frank Appel, CEO of Deutsche Post DHL Group, at an opening ceremony on October 12. "I am particularly delighted by the many additional jobs that we have been able to create. As a major employer and investor, we are very proud to be able to carry on supporting the positive economic development in Leipzig and the surrounding region."The further expansion of the modern hub underscores Leipzig's prominent position within DHL's global network and reflects the company's response to continued dynamic growth in the international express delivery business. The new sorting technology is the first of its kind in the industry. It consists of a combination of various innovative conveyor technologies, enabling the fully automated handling of packages with a weight of up to 170 kilograms, which would otherwise be too heavy or bulky for standard conveyor belts."The expansion of our capacity and particularly the introduction of our new sorting technology provide our customers with two crucial advantages: even more reliability at an even greater speed," said Ralph Wondrak, Managing Director of DHL Leipzig Hub. "Through our investment, we are able not only to increase the daily capacity of our flights but also to further improve our efficiency. We are ensuring that Leipzig will continue to play a central role in the world of global trade."
