DHL invests $4M in W. Hartford package depot

International courier DHL Express says a recent $4 million expansion of its West Hartford package-sorting depot enables it to more efficiently respond to growing regional demand for quick-delivery of business and consumer goods ordered online.
DHL’s 50-person depot at 141 South St., its home the past 20 years, was nearly doubled in size, to 38,000 square feet from 22,000 square feet, to serve its pickup/delivery territory reaching from Greater Hartford, north to Amherst, Mass., west to Torrington, south to Long Island Sound and east to the Rhode Island border, said Reiner Wolfs, DHL’s Northeast vice president and general manager.
The addition of state-of-the-art package-sorting and loading equipment means DHL can stage double the number of delivery vehicles around its sorting carousel, improving efficiency and enabling earlier deliveries, Wolfs said.
The West Hartford facility, he said, is linked to DHL’s global network through direct flights to and from the company’s Americas Hub at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport, as well as via ground to and from the DHL JFK International Gateway.
DHL is part of Deutsche Post DHL Group, whose 2018 revenues were more than $67.7 billion in 2018.

None of DHL’s other Connecticut facilities are due for upgrades, a spokesman said.
