DHL Constructs Logistics Center for Tom Tailor Group

DHL Supply Chain is constructing a state-of-the-art logistics center for the Tom Tailor Group in Hamburg. The two companies have been working together successfully since 2008 and are now looking to consolidate the partnership in the longer term.

The new warehouse complies with the latest technological standards and, with a size of almost 40,000 square meters, is designed to keep up with the expected growth mainly in the wholesale sector.

The new building will complement the existing DHL Supply Chain multi-user warehouse in Hamburg. Upon completion, the Hamburg DHL Supply Chain facility -- especially for fashion customers -- is expected to create up to 200 new jobs.

"We are delighted that the Tom Tailor Group is extending our business relationship through the joint development of a new ultra-modern logistics solution. The location is perfectly suited to the further growth of the Tom Tailor Group and can provide the required infrastructure to guarantee the efficient international distribution of goods," says Martin Seidenberg, CEO of DHL Supply Chain Germany & Alps. "I am also delighted that we will be creating new jobs for the region."

"The new central warehouse is being built on what is, for us, the perfect location and, in terms of logistics, it forms the long-term basis for continued wholesale growth within the Tom Tailor Group. By having different warehouse expansion stages, we are able to react to changing structural conditions with greater flexibility and thus guarantee required warehouse capacity. And thanks to state-of-the-art warehouse technology we are also able to provide efficient, high-quality distribution," says Dieter Holzer, CEO at the Tom Tailor Group.
