DHL opens Radlett centre

[ April 3, 2018   //   ]

DHL has opened a 6,500sq m e-fulfilment centre at Radlett, north London as part of a programme to expand its worldwide network. The carrier says it is also planning to expand across Europe, including in the Netherlands, Poland or Switzerland. It adds that with the e-commerce market placing aggressive demands on retailers to provide fast fulfilment and delivery, but without increasing costs, most merchants lack the capital or the ability to manage the complexity themselves. DHL has built a new IT platform that provides access to a network of fulfilment centres and closely integrated with its shipping capabilities to allow customers to meet their requirements more efficiently.
