DHL Express has opened a customer service facility in Brisbane, Australia. It has also opened a number of SwipBox parcel terminals in the same site.
Some 320 employees are to work in the new unit, including customer service, customer account management and customer-facing IT functions. The site also has capacity for an additional 20% of extra staff capacity as the business grows.
The new customer service site is to have SwipBox parcel lockers that are open on the ground floor between 8am-6pm Monday to Friday. These add to the 1000 parcel collection points across Australia, that the company has signalled will increase to 1,500 by the end of the year.
Gary Edstein, CEO and Senior Vice President at DHL Express Oceania said, “DHL Express Australia’s new national customer support centre demonstrates our continuing commitment to providing Australian businesses and consumers with reliable and customer centric onshore support, seven days a week.
Since 1997, our centralised Brisbane-based support centre has helped make international express shipping accessible in just a single phone call and supported the international expansion of countless Australian businesses.”
