DHL Supply Chain, the global market leader for contract logistics solutions, announced its facility expansion plans in Northern Taiwan for the next five years. The EUR 10 million (NTD 320 million) investment will grow DHL Supply Chain’s business presence and fulfil the logistics demand of the semiconductor and LSHC sectors.

Edwin Wong, SVP, Service Logistics AP, Taiwan & China Rep Office, DHL Supply Chain, said, “We see enormous growth potential in Taiwan despite the current economic conditions. Our expansion plans aim to fulfil the soaring demand for warehousing in Northern Taiwan, especially from the semiconductor sector. In addition, our expanded logistics portfolio in Taiwan enables us to respond quickly to market changes and urgent demand from end customers by delivering critical parts or finished goods within 2 hours.”

The expansion includes the newly-inaugurated Taoyuan Distribution Center-Jian Guo, DHL Supply Chain’s second site in Taoyuan. Opening in December 2022, the 10,000-square-meter facility offers excellent connectivity to National Highway No.1(by land), Taipei port (by sea), Taoyuan International airport (by air), and Science Parks in Hsinchu and Taipei for speedy delivery. It is also a green building equipped with solar panels to reduce carbon emissions. With this new facility, the total warehousing space in Taoyuan increases to 37,000 square meters.

D.J. Shieh, Managing Director of DHL Supply Chain Taiwan, said, “To support the growth of our business, we aim to expand our warehousing footprint in Northern Taiwan for the next five years. The Taoyuan Distribution Center- Jian Guo will be our 15th facility in Taiwan and is also one of the three largest distribution centres in our Northern Taiwan operation. The inauguration of this new site underlines our commitment to investing in state-of-the-art warehouses for our customers in Taiwan. In addition, we will provide high-quality logistics services to help our semiconductor and LSHC customers optimize the flexibility and agility of their supply chain so that they can focus on their core business and competencies.”

In addition to strengthening the partnership with semiconductor customers, DHL Supply Chain plans to extend and replicate its core capabilities to the LSHC sector, focusing on medical devices and pharmaceutical products. The semiconductor and LSHC sectors have stringent service requirements for properly storing and delivering high-value products. These requirements include time-critical delivery, strict facility and vehicle safety standards, full temperature and humidity control, quality management and compliance.

DHL Supply Chain Taiwan has further expansion plans to increase its total footprint in Taiwan to 200,000 square meters by 2027.
