DHL Express, the market leader in the express and logistics industry in Ireland, recently opened its new purpose-built facility in Blarney, Co. Cork.
The new facility, which has been successfully operating since April represents an investment of over €11.7m and will service DHL Express customers across Cork and the south western region. This facility in Blarney Business Park sees a significant increase in terms of sorting capacity, from 2,308 total usable sqm in the current facility, to over 14,980 sqm in the new facility.
This will facilitate significant growth in the DHL business, as well its customers. Commenting on the opening, Bernard McCarthy, Managing Director of DHL Express Ireland, said “We’re delighted to open our new purpose built facility in Blarney Business Park which provides a great base to service our many customers in Cork and across the South-Western region.
Through the pandemic with pressure and congestion in global supply chains, access to international express services has become even more important for Irish businesses trading internationally. In that regard this new facility provides further scope and capacity to manage the volume growth that we are experiencing and in so doing further improve our service offering to our local customer base.”
