DHL unveils new campus

DHLLogistics provider, DHL, has created 500 new jobs with the opening of a new 90,000sqm supply chain campus in Horsley Park, Western Sydney.

The $120 million DHL campus features innovative technology to reduce customers’ costs and support sustainability objectives.

A multi-million dollar automation solution provides retailers with improved speed to market while significantly reducing labor requirements. Investment has also been made to purchase a polystyrene extruder which reduces packaging waste from one semi trailer to one pallet of resalable building material, decreasing landfill and gaining a financial return.

It also includes DHL’s Transport Hub which receives and dispatches thousands of products into shopping centres, supermarkets, pharmacies and hospitals across Australia.

A dedicated team of transport professionals operate the Hub and are responsible for delivery, storage, staging, returns management and everything in between. IT systems underpin the operations to optimize routing, maximize load utilization and provide full visibility of deliveries in transit.

Saul Resnick, MD, DHL Supply Chain Australia, said DHL proudly supports growth and employment in Western Sydney.

“DHL is experiencing continued demand for warehousing space in Sydney and our customers are increasingly more willing to go into multi-user warehouses as they value the flexibility in overhead and labor costs to accommodate their changing business requirements.

“With expected new business and customer expansion, we are looking to build another three facilities in the coming years,” he said.

DHL Supply Chain provides logistics expertise to more than 200 customers in Australia across retail, airline, automotive, consumer, energy and healthcare industries. The company employs more than 3000 people in Australia across 50 locations, and has a warehousing footprint in excess of 570,000sqm.
