DHL Relocates to Larger Ontario, California, Service Hub
The new, freestanding service center, located at 1651 S. Carlos Ave. provides a total of 75,000 square feet of building space, with 5,600 square feet of office space included. By contrast, the company's former facility was a little over 39,000 square feet.
"DHL's expansion in Ontario is a direct reflection of our customers' business growth, which has been bolstered by an uptick in international shipping, largely due to the rise of e-commerce," said John Fox, General Manager for DHL, Western U.S. "This strategic investment ensures our ability to meet the demands of local small and medium-sized businesses, while further supporting the development of global trade."
The larger DHL warehouse features additional dock doors and two conveyor belts that can process up to 3,000 pieces per hour. The facility processes shipments ranging from documents and small parcels to palletized freight. The number of items that can be unloaded into the facility will double. Another benefit to the larger quarters: a larger parking lot for customers.
According to the Inland Empire Regional Chamber of Commerce, Ontario is located in California's Inland Empire, the counties of Riverside and San Bernardino, which has one of the most rapidly growing economies in the country. The Chamber also reported that air cargo moving through the Ontario airport swelled more than 15 percent in 2017 as compared with the prior year.
