DHL Supply Chain Establishes Cowpens, South Carolina, Operations Complex
Located at 600 Webber Road, DHL’s new operations will include the development of a 1.3-million-square-foot warehouse. The facility is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2022.
“DHL Supply Chain is excited to once again partner with the state of South Carolina to grow our logistics presence in a very desirable market. We are a firm believer that our investment in the Palmetto State will further solidify our market leadership position in the supply chain and logistics industry,” said DHL Supply Chain Head of Real Estate Solutions, Americas, Carl DeLuca.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project as an incentive. A $250,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant was also awarded to Cherokee County to assist with costs associated with the project.
"Logistics companies are right at home in South Carolina. DHL's new facility in Cherokee County will help our state's businesses move their products quickly and efficiently in a competitive marketplace,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said.
DHL Supply Chain provides customized logistics solutions based on globally standardized warehousing, transportation and integrated services components.
“Folks going from Charlotte to Atlanta see that there’s a lot going on in Cherokee County. They’re great jobs and that’s why we’re trying to get folks who are under-employed, telling them that these will be higher paying jobs,” added Jim Cook, Executive director of Cherokee County’s Development Board.
