The Germany-based courier giants, DHL, has announced it has begun to make substantial changes at its O’Hare airport unit in Chicago, according to Supply Chain 24/7.

The move, which is geared towards expanding its new services and technologies in order to support high-growth sectors such as life sciences healthcare logistics, will enable DHL’s Forwarding Group to make developments such as a new RFID passive and active tracking system in its Chicago facility.

In a bid to augment warehouse automation, DHL has installed new weight and dimensional technology that enables packages to be processed more quickly.

In an interview, David Goldberg, CEO of DHL Global Forwarding, said: “It is centrally located with all major flights in and out of Chicago. A lot of cargo lift both domestic and international. Our shipments can reach most points via ground in two days. There is also an abundance of temperature-controlled trucking and back up facilities and a specialized LSH and temperature-controlled employee training. The building is also a Foreign Trade Zone and bonded Container Freight Station located in the Chicago O’Hare International Airport’s cargo zone.”

The $35mn facility has become DHL Global Forwarding’s largest air export gateway facility with 434,000 sq.ft.
