   DHL Supply Chain, a subsidiary of Deutsche Post DHL Group, said it plans to build a warehouse park in Dorchester County, S.C., that will support about 450 jobs.
    The company purchased 125 acres for the DHL Commerce Park. It will spend about $100 million to construct three buildings totaling 1.7 million square feet. The first facility is expected to be finished by early 2020, the company said.
      “South Carolina Ports Authority is seeing significant distribution center and warehousing activity in our region, driven by port users who rely on our marine and inland facilities to handle growing import volumes bound for consumers across the Southeast,” said Jim Newsome, the port authority’s president and CEO, in a statement. “DHL Supply Chain will play an important role in supporting the logistics needs of multiple port-related business segments, and we look forward to the opening of their new facility.”

Any use of slow steaming should be done on a voluntary basis through the marketplace between the business interests involved. Without a recognition of the complete supply chain, mandated speed restrictions for all vessels at sea will be counterproductive.

The Port of Hamburg handled 2.3 million TEUs in the first quarter, which was a 6.4% growth in container handling. The U.S. became the port's second-largest partner in container traffic with 121,000 TEUs.
