DHL Express, a global provider of international express shipping services, recently expanded its network of U.S. retail locations by opening a mobile pop-up store in Katy, TX. Located in the Katy Mills shopping center, the 2,200 cu. ft. mobile DHL ServicePoint offers a safe, easy-to-use shipping option for customers.
“Our new pop-up store provides greater accessibility and a faster, more convenient experience for our customers,” said Greg Hewitt, CEO of DHL Express. “This innovative, mobile model was installed to address Houston’s growing demand for international shipping services, which has increased significantly since last year due to a pandemic-related surge in e-commerce sales.”
DHL worked with Simon Property Group to place the pop-up store in Katy, TX, where it will remain for the foreseeable future and can be relocated, as needed, based on changes in local shipping trends. The entire unit rests atop a hydraulic-lift platform and features an intelligent wiring solution to accommodate HVAC, security and an efficient point-of-sale system capable of processing shipments to U.S destinations as well as any of the 220 countries and territories DHL serves. Supplies such as bubble wrap, packing tape and DHL-branded boxes are available at the mobile unit, and soon customers will be able to pick up incoming packages from this location.
In response to social-distancing concerns, this DHL ServicePoint also offers convenient safety features such as the Call Ahead service and an easy-access service window.
