Oct 17, 2019 (LBO) – DHL Global Forwarding Sri Lanka has moved to consolidate its operations and facilities in Colombo into a 225,000-square-foot logistics compound.
Dubbed the “DHL Logistics Hub”, the compound comprises seven warehouses and the logistics company’s local head office and is strategically located in Negombo Road, Colombo just six kilometers from the Colombo Sea Port and 30 kilometers from the Bandaranaike International Airport.
In a move that demonstrates strategic investment and commitment to the long term potential and resilience of the Sri Lankan economy, DHL Global Forwarding brings together all services to support the import and export of goods in and out of Sri Lanka at the DHL Logistics Park.
Amidst global trade tensions, Sri Lanka recently urged Chinese manufacturers to consider the country as a production base to tap its preferential duty-free treatment by the US and Europe and reduce tariff pressures.
The consolidation of DHL Global Forwarding operations at the 225,000-square-foot DHL Logistics Park helps provide greater efficiencies for the local operations.
Within the compound, the company runs warehousing and transportation for fast-moving consumer goods, life sciences and healthcare, fashion and retail sectors.
DHL Global Forwarding will also continue to provide air and ocean freight services, customs clearance and the host of value-added services, such as labeling, bundling and promotional packaging for customers.
