Sydney, Australia – DHL eCommerce Solutions in Australia, a division of the multinational logistics company, Deutsche Post DHL (DPDHL) has announced that it has relocated its Sydney headquarters to a 19,000 sq. m facility at the industrial property Millennium Court located at the suburb Matraville. The eCommerce unit will now be co-located with another DPDHL unit DHL Global Forwarding.
The relocation will see the e-commerce logistics specialist more than double its square footage from its current Rosebery HQ.
The expansion comes in the middle of the significant growth in e-commerce shipping demands from overseas consumers as a result of lifestyle changes brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic. The company said that its export volume of children’s toys since the start of the year has been 60 times over. Other product categories such as kitchen & home cooking, health & beauty, and pet products are also said to have recorded triple digit growth in volume.
“Now more so than ever, Australian businesses are seizing cross border opportunities to expand their business globally, despite the current economic headwinds. As e-commerce becomes the new normal, this investment will enhance our speed and service capabilities,” said Denise McGrouther, managing director for DHL eCommerce Solutions Oceania.
The new facility will provide for better organization with space for planned investments into innovative warehousing technologies. When fully operational, the company expects advancements to enhance overall efficiency and enable faster processing times for the growing number of e-commerce parcels coming in and out of Australia.
