DHL Supply Chain has opened a new transport hub in Hamilton, New Zealand.
This hub will further bolster final-mile delivery capabilities in under serviced areas outside of Auckland.
Fitted with state-of-the-art technology and equipment, the new facility will serve as a key logistics hub nationwide to better meet the needs and expectations of regional customers.
DHL Supply Chain New Zealand Managing Director, Matt Casbolt, was excited to announce the opening of the new transport hub in Hamilton.
“This is the latest addition to our two-year transport network development strategy, following on from the establishment of our Whangarei, Tauranga, and Hawkes Bay transport hubs,” he said.
“With the addition of our new Hamilton hub and existing network, we are proud to now provide last mile and line haul services to customers in regions and key markets that represent over 50 per cent of the country’s GDP.
“Our goal is to continue delivering an exceptional transport service to our customers, enabled by great people, a strong network presence, and partnering with the best transport service providers.”
The new hub will service customers across all sectors that require a high service standard in deliveries, including consumer goods, life sciences, healthcare, engineering and IT sectors.
DHL’s investment in regional areas is aiming to enhance the resilience of supply chains in New Zealand. As part of this investment, DHL plans to open further hubs later this year and into 2024.
