In News1 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineJune 2, 2023

In a bid to further bolster final-mile delivery capabilities in underserviced areas outside of Auckland, DHL Supply Chain has opened a new transport hub in Hamilton.

The new hub serves as a key logistics hub nationwide, ensuring reliable and efficient delivery of consignments to end recipients.

Fitted with state-of-the-art technology and equipment, the new transport hub will better meet the needs and expectations of regional customers in the surrounding communities.

“We’re excited to announce the opening of our new transport hub in Hamilton,” said Matt Casbolt, managing director at DHL Supply Chain New Zealand.

“This is the latest addition to our two-year transport network development strategy, following on from the establishment of our Whangarei, Tauranga, and Hawke’s Bay transport hubs,” he said.

“With the addition of our new Hamilton hub and existing network, we are proud to now provide last mile and line haul services to customers in regions and key markets that represent over 50% of the country’s GDP.

“Our goal is to continue delivering an exceptional transport service to our customers, enabled by great people, a strong network presence, and partnering with the best transport service providers.”

DHL also plans to open further hubs later this year and into 2024 to support ambitious growth plans for the New Zealand market.

DHL now has a network of depots across Auckland, Whangarei, Tauranga, Hamilton and Hastings.
