DHL announces changes at its O’Hare airport

The Germany-based courier giants, DHL, has announced it has begun to make substantial changes at its O’Hare airport unit in Chicago, according to Supply Chain 24/7.

The move, which is geared towards expanding its new services and technologies in order to support high-growth sectors such as life sciences healthcare logistics, will enable DHL’s Forwarding Group to make developments such as a new RFID passive and active tracking system in its Chicago facility.

In a bid to augment warehouse automation, DHL has installed new weight and dimensional technology that enables packages to be processed more quickly.

The building is also a Foreign Trade Zone and bonded Container Freight Station located in the Chicago O’Hare International Airport’s cargo zone.”

The $35mn facility has become DHL Global Forwarding’s largest air export gateway facility with 434,000 sq.ft.
