International logistics centre opens in Poland

DHL Group has opened a combined sorting and distribution centre in Poland that is prepared to handle a million parcels daily.

The centre, located near Poznan, Poland, was a joint project between DHL eCommerce, Post & Parcel Germany and DHL Freight, and is designed to deliver faster lead times to customers.

With an investment of about 180 million (Euro), the new facility spans an area of 32,000 sqm and features 3,000 metres of conveyor belts and a sorting capacity of 45,000 parcels per hour. In addition, DHL Freight operates a terminal dedicated to processing palletised shipments and less-than-container-load cargo for its Polish and European customers. This combined setup, with a workforce of around 500 employees, makes it one of Europe’s largest centres for parcel sorting and logistics.

“This facility, equipped with cutting-edge technology, will improve quality of service, making it a distinctive addition to our European network,” said the CEO of DHL Group, Tobias Meyer. “It will reduce transit times to many European markets, particularly between Germany and Poland, underlining our commitment to providing our customers with fast and reliable cross-border shipping services.”

In addition to international e-commerce and national Polish parcel volumes, the facility will also handle shipments for Post & Parcel in Germany, including domestic volumes to and returns from Germany. The Poznan hub will have direct linehaul connections to all parcel hubs in Germany, Poland and many other European countries, ensuring seamless connectivity.
