DHL Supply Chain has opened a new transport hub in Hamilton, further bolstering its final-mile delivery capabilities in underserviced areas outside of Auckland.
Strategically located in Hamilton, the new hub serves as a key logistics facility nationwide, ensuring reliable and efficient delivery of consignments to end recipients.
Fitted with state-of-the-art technology and equipment, it will better meet the needs and expectations of regional customers in the surrounding communities, says Matt Casbolt, Managing Director at DHL Supply Chain New Zealand.
“This is the latest addition to our two-year transport network development strategy, following on from the establishment of our Whangarei, Tauranga, and Hawkes Bay transport hubs.”
“With the addition of our new Hamilton hub and existing network, we now provide last mile and line haul services to customers in regions and key markets that represent over 50 percent of the country’s GDP,” added Casbolt.
“Our goal is to continue delivering an exceptional transport service to our customers, enabled by great people, a strong network presence, and partnering with the best transport service providers.”
DHL’s investment in regional areas is helping to enhance the resilience of supply chains in New Zealand, especially in the wake of recent global supply chain disruptions. As part of this investment, DHL plan to open further hubs later this year and into 2024 to support ambitious growth plans for the New Zealand market.
DHL now has a network of depots across Auckland, Whangarei, Tauranga, Hamilton and Hastings.
