DHL Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight specialist within Deutsche Post DHL Group, has announced it is expanding its presence in Salt Lake City, Utah in order to satisfy the needs of local customers who require air freight, ocean freight, customs brokerage, warehouse storage and domestic services, the company said.
The Salt Lake City station opening forms part of DHL´s strategic plan to grow its supply chain services in key cities across the US
With a central US location that is almost equidistant from major Western US markets, Salt Lake City also stood out to DHL for its thriving industries, which include technology, vitamin and supplements, diet-related products, probiotics, aerospace, logistics and outdoor activities. In fact, Salt Lake City is frequently noted as a potential “Silicon Valley”-like location after major e-commerce companies have opened facilities in the city.
DHL Global Forwarding´s Salt Lake City station employs nine employees and is located only three miles from the Salt Lake City International Airport. To date, DHL has solidified its presence in 15 cities across the US, with plans to have 36 US stations by the end of 2017.
