DHL Express invests ~EUR750 million in Asia Pacific on the back of ecommerce growth

DHL Express has announced that it is investing circa EUR 690 million between 2020 and 2022 to build or expand its facilities in key growth markets of Australia, Japan, Hong Kong S.A.R. and South Korea. Equally, it intends to spend close to EUR 60 million to bolster its Asia Pacific air network such as introducing direct, new (e.g. Vientiane, Yangon), and frequent (e.g. Oceania) flight routes. 

DHL Express expects shipment volumes in Asia Pacific to be 30-40% larger than last year’s peak season, which typically starts around November and lasts until Lunar New Year. “These investments are testament to our continued confidence in the region. They are crucial not only in the near term as we expect to tackle an unusually strong peak season, but it will make sure that we are well-positioned in the long run to keep global trade running as e-commerce and cross-border trade grow,” said Ken Lee, CEO of DHL Express Asia Pacific. 

The expanded infrastructure and new flight routes across Asia Pacific will help the company tackle the unprecedented growth in shipment volume and address the ever-growing demand for time-definite express deliveries. Since the start of 2020, DHL Express has experienced a 50% surge in e-commerce shipments in Asia Pacific (excluding China).
