DHL said it has completed its four-year, $105 million expansion of its air hub for the Americas at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport.
The enhancements include a new 180,000-square foot sorting facility specifically designed to accommodate larger express shipments; an expanded south ramp for additional wide-body aircraft; an employee and pilot building; and a facility-wide information technology upgrade.
Company officials say the larger facility will enable DHL to expedite the transfer and delivery of international packages as shipping volumes increase.
DHL recently launched new direct flights between the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport and Japan and increased capacity into Australia. The new flights improve transit times between Asia, the United States and Latin America, as well as expand intra-Asia connections. - Eric Kulisch
