DHL opens Milan hub

[ March 11, 2021   //   ]

DHL Express has opened its new logistics hub at Malpensa airport near Milan. It will be able to operate over 30 daily flights and handle nearly 38,000 pieces per hour through automated sorting and scanning systems. The facility employs 900 people but during peak periods this number could increase by a further 10%. 

At €110 million, Malpensa represents a third of total investment in Italy by DHL Express. As the fourth biggest European hub, it joins Leipzig, East Midlands in the UK and Brussels and was built in full compliance with the latest sustainability, safety and efficiency guidelines of the Deutsche Post DHL Group GoGreen strategy. The new dual facility integrates all DHL Express processes under one roof, managing the air service and a service centre for last mile pick-up and delivery.
