DHL Express today unveiled the blueprint of DHL Express South Asia Hub, a 24-hour express hub facility located within Changi Airfreight Center at Singapore Changi Airport. The new facility is being built in line with the ongoing investment program in the DHL Express global network. With a total investment of EUR 85 million and scheduled to be operational by the first quarter of 2016, the hub will further support regional businesses operating in and out of Singapore.

In Asia Pacific, DHL Express’ four hubs – Shanghai, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Singapore – link to over 70 DHL Express Gateways located throughout the region.
