Feb 28, 2019: DHL Express, part of German logistics group Deutsche Post DHL Group, has invested 93 million euros, in its new hub at Barajas Adolfo Suarez Airport in Madrid.

The new facility will be able to process 24,500 pieces of mail per hour, including packages and envelopes, as it features the latest state-of-the-art logistics technology.
A statement from DHL tells us that this investment strengthens Madrid’s position as an important hub for international commerce, especially between Europe and Latin America.
By investing in high-quality infrastructure and the newest technologies, DHL Express will quadruple its capacity in Madrid.
“Customers from our traditional sectors as well as e-commerce customers in both private b2c as well as businesses who are driving their own b2b growth agendas through e-commerce will benefit from the investment," says John Pearson, CEO of DHL Express.
Miguel Borras, managing director, DHL Express Spain and Portugal said: “This new hub is a critical nexus between Europe and the LatAm countries. Thanks to this, we could connect businesses from all industries and private consumers alike, and enable them to leverage from the increasingly growing e-commerce worldwide.”
In accordance with DHL’s GoGreen Programme the new hub will help to reduce the company’s carbon footprint thanks to the use of new and more efficient sorting technology, improved building insulation, and more efficient energy systems to manage the consumption of electricity, water and cooling systems.
