DHL Express Australia has announced a $50 million dollar investment with its new Sydney Service Centre at Goodman’s Airgate Business Park in Mascot. The new facility is the largest infrastructure investment made by the company in Australia to date and is set to provide increased support for Australian businesses with international parcel trade.
The 8,600 sqm service centre is more than twice the size of DHL Express’ previous facility, and is equipped with the latest industry technology and designed for optimal shipment processing efficiency. Housed within a clear span uniform structure, it features an automated material handling system spanning 1.1 kilometres, with a throughput capacity of 4,200 pieces per hour. More than 200 metres of automated distribution conveyors move processed shipments straight to 99 direct load vehicle positions, enabling simultaneous loading of freight for courier delivery.
Strategically located in Mascot, the site provides access to a large consumer population of 2.1 million people within 30 minutes of the estate*. This new facility provides centralised access to key arterial roads and is only 3.2 kilometres from the company’s direct airside Sydney Gateway facility at the Sydney Airport Precinct.
For convenience, customers have access to drop-off and pick-up via a dedicated customer reception which includes self-service parcel lockers and 21-space car park, all within a 12 minute walk from Mascot’s train station and high-density commercial and residential area.
DHL Express Australia will also relocate its Country Head Office into a 3,700 sqm multi-story office block adjacent to the facility. Catering for 200 employees, the space also includes dedicated training rooms, 183-space secure car park and on-site café.
