DHL invests in European logistics network
State-of-the-art terminal opened in BreslauBreslau/Bonn, 10/07/2005, 11:30 AM CEST
Peter E. Kruse, Member of the Corporate Board at Deutsche Post World Net with responsibility for DHL Express Europe and Germany, inaugurated a new state-of-the-art DHL terminal in Breslau yesterday. The terminal is intended to strengthen the European DHL logistics network.
It is one of five new terminals to be opened in Poland in 2005. Costs for the new warehouse and sorting center amount to 3.3 million euros.
The opening of the Breslau terminal and other facilities in the near future forms part of DHL Express' consistent growth strategy in Europe. The terminal has a transshipment capacity of up to 15,000 items per day. The prolonged posting times and earlier delivery times represent significant advantages for express customers.
The Breslau plant will supplement the three centers in Gluchowo (near Pozna), Zabrze and Warsaw. "As global market leader in the express and logistics industry, specializing in innovative and customized solutions from a single source, we want to offer our customers comprehensive service at the highest level.
Since its accession to the EU, Poland has played an important strategic role in our new business development in eastern Europe," explained Kruse at a press conference in Breslau. "The new terminal in Breslau will help us to further improve our operating processes in the interest of our customers - and not just in Poland, but also within the international DHL network," Kruse added.
