[ June 21, 2016   //   ]

DHL Express has opened what it says is the largest express facility in Myanmar (Burma). Located in Yangon and occupying over 50,000 square feet of land with a built-up area of 32,500 square feet, it will cater to the country’s increasing logistics needs, including growth sectors such as infrastructure, oil and gas and garments.

Country manager Mark Ong, said: “The new service center is located close to the airport, which enables us to ensure faster deliveries for more customers.”

The facility contains a conveyor belt system that allows goods to be directly loaded into courier vans. Parcels are continuously monitored by an X-ray machine, in addition to over 30 CCTV cameras located throughout the premises.

DHL Express’s Myanmar network now includes four service points, three service centers and a fleet of over 30 vehicles.
