DHL has opened a new service center near the Louisville, Ky. International Airport. The 64,000-square-foot operation, located across from Standiford Field, combines a facility east of Louisville with DHL's previous operations near the airport. It is home to DHL's local pickup, delivery and sorting operations, as well as providing a base for local sales employees. The pickup and delivery area for the new facility includes cities in and around the Louisville metro area, east to Indiana including Austin, and as far south as cities along the Tennessee border. DHL said the service center will handle a wide variety of shipments, including domestic and international parcels, and palletized, loose-load and container freight. According to the company, the facility can process shipments 50 percent faster than the previous operation. It features 84 load positions to accommodate more vehicles and higher freight volumes. DHL invested $2.7m in the project.
