Construction begins on new DHL Coventry hub

28 September 2022/Categories: Logistics & Supply Chain, Operations Management

DHL announced that construction has started on its new £230m hub in SEGRO Park Coventry. The new facility will double DHL’s handling capacity and is expected to create over 600 new jobs for the area. 

Construction of the new 25,000m² hub, located south of Coventry airport within Warwick District, is expected to be completed in summer 2024. It will have the capacity to handle well over 500k items per day and will feature secure bonded storage and customs capabilities to support international e-commerce.

The hub features state of the art mechanization to enable high speed and high-quality parcel handling and has been designed to high environmental standards, through features such as 7,000m² of solar panels, EV charging stations for cars and LGVs, LED lighting and landscaping to protect the natural biodiversity of the area.

Peter Fuller, CEO of DHL Parcel UK, says, “We’re excited to see this major project get underway. Coventry’s location makes it a gateway to the rest of the country, 90% of UK postcodes can be reached within 4 hours so it’s an ideal location for us to be able to provide a fast and high quality service. Our existing hub and head office are in neighbouring Ryton-on-Dunsmore so we’re proud to continue investing in the area, creating new jobs and a blueprint for sustainable development.”

The investment in DHL’s new Coventry hub is part of a £482m investment to facilitate business growth in the UK and is supported by 10 brand new collection and delivery depots across the UK, and expansion of 20 more existing sites as well as investment in sustainable transport.
