DHL invests in Hong Kong facility
DHL said Wednesday it will invest HK$360 million ($46 million) in a multiuser facility for DHL Supply Chain Hong Kong.
DHL Supply Chain will occupy at least 25 percent of the “Interlink” facility being developed by the Goodman Group. The facility, to be completed in January 2012, is located in Tsing Yi, situated between the container ports and Hong Kong International Airport.
DHL said it sees growing demand, particularly among customers in the consumer, fashion and high-tech industries.
DHL said the facility, which will employ 300, will function as one of the primary Asia-Pacific distribution centers for DHL Supply Chain's established business in the fashion and apparel industry, supplying European-made garments across the Asian market from Beijing to Sydney to Singapore.
The company also said it will be used as a service parts logistics hub, providing 24/7 urgent response spare parts delivery to DHL customers in Hong Kong and the Asia Pacific region.
