DHL to open Danish super-hub in 2023

[ January 21, 2019   //   ]

DHL Express is building a DKK 1 billion (€134 million), 26,172sq m hub at the eastern freight area of Copenhagen airport. When it opens in 2023 it will be able to handle 37,000 packages per hour five times as many as the existing facility. Packages to and from Denmark usually travel via the DHL hubs in Leipzig, Germany, or East Midlands, UK. However, once the new hub at Copenhagen Airport is built, planes will reach their destinations without additional stops. Earlier, DHL Express broke ground on a new terminal in the central city of Fredericia which is due to open in early 2020.
