DHL starts building “mega” parcel centre in Bochum

DHL Parcel had a formal ground breaking ceremony for the new ‘mega’ parcel centre in Bochum in the Ruhr region of Germany on Monday.

According to the DHL website, DHL says that by autumn 2019 the new facility in Bochum will be able to process up to 50,000 shipments an hour. Bochum will then be “one of the largest and most efficient parcel centres in Europe”.

Jürgen Gerdes, Board Member for the Post – eCommerce – Parcel division at Deutsche Post DHL Group, commented: “Our network – with an average of 4.3m parcels per day – leads the way in Germany when it comes to capacity and quality.

“Now we are making our network even more efficient – and making the lives of our customers even easier as a result. Our Packstations, parcel boxes and other innovative delivery services also have a hand in this.”
