DHL eCommerce Boosts its China Footprint

DHL eCommerce has announced plans to grow its overall presence in China by over 50 percent. This is due in response to the online retail segment and the corresponding demand for quality logistics solutions that continues to grow leaps and bounds. As part of this, the company has opened its new DHL eCommerce Shenzhen Distribution Center, and will also expand its existing distribution centers in Shanghai and Hong Kong to support the growth of online retailers.

The DHL eCommerce Shenzhen Distribution Center supports the booming manufacturing sector in Shenzhen and the growing base of Chinese online retailers. With the capacity to handle up to 18 million shipments a year, the distribution center will allow for faster, more streamlined shipment and clearance of e-commerce exports to the rest of the world. This center will serve as the consolidation point for all of South China’s international outbound shipments.

“Cross-border e-commerce already accounts for almost 20 percent of China’s foreign trade, and the country’s B2C e-commerce market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 30 percent from now till 2020,” said Malcolm Monteiro, CEO, Asia Pacific, DHL eCommerce. “With the ability to scale up its size by 150 percent, the DHL eCommerce Shenzhen Distribution Center is fully capable to support this growing demand over the coming years.”

“Since its launch last July, the DHL eCommerce Shanghai Distribution Center has seen a 700 percent increase in the volume of e-commerce goods being shipped out of China. With our plans to expand our existing capabilities in Shanghai and Hong Kong, we are confident that this will provide our customers with the fullest support they need, in order to reach their global customer base,” Monteiro added.
