DHL eCommerce – Melbourne distribution centre opened

With plans to support e-commerce exports from Australia, DHL eCommerce has opened a distribution centre in Melbourne.

The new DHL eCommerce distribution centre is located next to the DHL Global Forwarding 16,700 square metre facility in Tullamarine.

In a statement, Charles Brewer, CEO, DHL eCommerce, commented: “Two significant trends are influencing global trade: the increasing adoption of e-commerce and the prominent role of logistics networks in shaping trade. In this changing environment, Australian consumer goods companies have an excellent opportunity to grow export markets with e-commerce continuing to grow as a strong channel.

“Logistics plays a key role in enabling trade and DHL is investing in our presence in Australia to ensure we are well-positioned to support businesses to capture the cross border e-commerce opportunity.”

DHL eCommerce added: “The Melbourne distribution centre will focus on e-commerce exports weighing up to 2kg shipped to over 220 countries and territories worldwide, and up to 20kg to popular e-commerce destinations such as China, U.S., UK, Germany, New Zealand and Southeast Asia. With the addition of the new facility coupled with the existing distribution centers in Sydney, DHL eCommerce will support Australian e-commerce sellers looking to export to an increasing number of markets internationally.”
