DHL Freight unveils new Germany terminal

DHL Freight has unveiled its new freight terminal in Germany’s Rhine-Main Metropolitan Region, in its grand opening ceremony on 10 June 2022.

The new 82,840-square-metre facility features a 12,000-square-metre cross-dock terminal, a 10,500-square-metre warehouse for specialty chemicals and general manufacturing goods and 3,800 square metres of office space.

DHL Freight DACH CEO, Thomas Vogel, said the demand for road transport and customised logistics services lead the company to expand its network in Germany.

“Its opening has allowed us to significantly expand capacity once more and to offer our customers better solutions and services,” he said.

“We are also proud to make an additional contribution to our Group’s sustainability strategy by providing modern and sustainable solutions at the site.”

The Erlensee site is conveniently situated close to the BAB 66 and 45 freeways, around 25 km from Frankfurt am Main.

It was built in accordance with the latest construction and environmental standards derived from Deutsche Post DHL Group’s Sustainability Roadmap.

The warehouses and gatehouse buildings have green roofs covering a total of 11,300 square-metres and energy-saving LED lighting installed both indoors and outdoors.

In addition to opening the new Freight terminal, DHL is deploying two electric trucks. Part of a recent partnership agreement between Volvo Trucks and DHL Freight, the vehicles will make local customer deliveries and collections with zero exhaust emission more sustainable.
