DHL opens Bochum mega centre

[ November 18, 2019   //   ]

Deutsche Post DHL has opened a ‘mega parcel centre’ in Bochum, between Essen and Dortmund in Germany. With a sorting capacity of up to 50,000 shipments per hour, the Bochum centre along with that at Obertshausen near Frankfurt am Main, which opened in 2016, is the largest DHL parcel centre in Germany and also one of the most efficient in all of Europe, says the company. It is supplied with electricity and heat by its own thermal power station, which it also feeds into Bochum’s public utility network.
