DHL has launched a new e-commerce fulfilment platform and centres in the United Kingdom, Americas and South East Asia, as part of its plans to become a leading global provider of e-commerce logistics.
Its new IT platform allows retailers to access the DHL network and services, giving them what DHL describes as a cost-effective solution for fast fulfilment and deliveries.
“Without seamless and reliable logistics processes, the current e-commerce boom would be inconceivable,” said Jürgen Gerdes, CEO of the Post - eCommerce - Parcel division at DHL. “The physical storage of ordered goods, their picking and packaging, the global shipping and delivery to the end-user’s front door or desired address – we now offer this in even more markets and from one single source.
“By further internationalizing our fulfillment portfolio we will be able to do even more to help online retailers tap into new regions and benefit from the global e-commerce boom.”
The newest fulfilment centre in the UK is in the English town of Radlett, near London. It occupies about 6,500 square metres and its location allows for same-day processing for the Greater London area.
DHL is also looking into the Netherlands, Poland and Switzerland as locations for further e-commerce facilities.
