MANILA – DHL Express is spending about P150 million in the Philippines to expand its existing facilities and build new facilities in the country.

The new international express service provider said the new facilities will be put up in Clark, Cebu and Las Pinas.

“This year is really an exciting year for us at DHL Express Philippines,” said DHL Express country manager Nurhayati Abdullah.

About P30 million will be spent for a new 1,000-square meter DHL Express service facility in Clark, which will cater to customers in Northern Luzon.

The Clark facility aims to increase handling capacity and facilitate the industry’s growing demand for trade in the region.

“The Philippine market holds great potential for us and we are always on the lookout to further expand our footprint in the country,” Abdullah said.

Abdullah added that about P78 million will be spent for a new facility in Las Pinas, which will cater customers in Southern Luzon.

Another P42 million, meanwhile, will be spent to expand its existing facility near the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

Abdullah said the Cebu facility is expected to be established within the year.

Currently, DHL Express has eight service center facilities and 195 service points in the country.

“We will continue to invest in upgrading our facilities and skill sets of our employees to meet the changing demands of our customers in the Philippines,” said Abdullah.

DHL operates in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide.
