DHL Express recently opened its new logistics hub at Malpensa airport near Milano, Italy. In the new state-of-the-art hub, DHL will be able to operate over 30 daily flights and nearly 38,000 pieces per hour through automated sorting and scanning systems. The facility employs 900 people – during peak periods this number could increase by a further 10%.
“The pandemic has not only changed our current lives but also changed our future. Globalization and digitalization play a crucial role in the economic recovery from Covid-19. They enable E-commerce and cross-border trade, which nurtures an increasing demand on express services. With our new logistics hub in Italy, we can react to this increase in demand by further connecting markets internationally,” says Alberto Nobis, CEO DHL Express Europe.
“The Malpensa Hub is the flagship of our strengthening strategy in Italy, in which we have an ambitious investment plan of over 350 million euros with the aim of being the partner of companies that produce and export Italian excellence in the world” – said Nazzarena Franco, CEO of DHL Express Italy, who added that ” Despite the pandemic, our business has never stopped, and we have always tried to meet the needs of companies by supporting their efforts particularly in foreign markets. Lombardy represents one-third of the country’s exports thanks to a dynamic entrepreneurial system and highly innovative supply chains such as IT, textiles, fashion, aeronautics, automotive, and with the new hub we want to contribute to the growth of Italian exports” – concludes Nazzarena Franco.
