New DHL service centre launched

DHL Express has announced the launch of a Hong Kong West Service Center (KWC).

Following an investment of almost $200 million (USD), the new fully automated, eco-friendly facility aims to assist with the company’s long-term growth plan and infrastructural investments in Hong Kong.

Boosting an increase of more than 90 percent in site area, the new facility is now more efficient with capacity to address the increasing demand for international express services within the city and internationally. Featuring a fully automated sorting system, the new facility can handle more than 50,000 shipments a day and will double its sorting capacity. 

The facility is also newly equipped with inline reweighing and dimensioning machines and 100 per cent inline X-ray screening for greater efficiencies and accuracy.

“The recent launch of our expanded Central Asia Hub at the Hong Kong International Airport and the opening of this fully automated Hong Kong West Service Center strengthen our network and capabilities,” said Senior Vice President and Managing Director of DHL Express Hong Kong and Macau, Andy Chiang. “It also reinforces our commitment to enhancing Hong Kong’s position as an international trade and logistics hub.” 

The unveiling of the new facility is aligned with the Government of Hong Kong’s plan to develop the city into a sustainable, international, smart logistics hub focusing on high-value goods and e-commerce markets. 

Strategically located in the Tuen Mun West – a dedicated logistics site assigned by the government to support modern logistics development – the new KWC enjoys direct access to Hong Kong’s major transport network. It is close to the Hong Kong International Airport, container terminals and mainland China.
