Industry’s largest Express handling airside facility
With an investment of EUR22 million (~INR 200 crore) over the next 10 years, DHL Express, the world’s leading express service provider, has opened the express industry’s largest airside facility in Bengaluru, India.
Located within the Kempegowda International Airport, this newly expanded Bengaluru Gateway by DHL Express spans over 112,000 sq feet, over four times larger than the previous facility.
When operating at full capacity, this new and expanded facility can handle over 90,000 tons of shipment per year. The additional capacity at the expanded Bengaluru Gateway enables DHL Express to offer 12 to 24 hours faster connection and delivery of imported goods across India, and reduce daily cut-off time for shipment pick-up by up to 60 minutes.
Using 11 DHL-operated intercontinental freighters, 30 international commercial airlines and 70 domestic flights on a weekly basis, the Bengaluru Gateway at present connects both South and West India to over 220 countries and territories through DHL’s unrivalled global network. An additional six dedicated intercontinental freighters will join the current fleet by November 2021, bringing the total number of aircraft operating through Bengaluru to 17.
