DHL eCommerce Solutions has announced they will be moving their Sydney HQ to Matraville and expanding its square footage by more than double to meet growing e-commerce shipping demands.
The relocation will more than double the square footage from their current Rosebery HQ. DHL says this expansion comes amidst significant growth in e-commerce shipping demands from overseas consumers as a result of lifestyle changes brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic. Export data from DHL eCommerce Solutions shows a 60 times volume growth in the export of children’s toys since the start of the year, for example. Other product categories such as kitchen & home cooking, health & beauty, and pet products have also seen triple digit volume growth.
Denise McGrouther, Managing Director for DHL eCommerce Solutions Oceania, said: “Now more so than ever, Australian businesses are seizing cross border opportunities to expand their business globally, despite the current economic headwinds. As e-commerce becomes the new normal, this investment will enhance our speed and service capabilities, while demonstrating our commitment to support local businesses by meeting the growing demand for reliable and affordable international shipping.”
