DHL expands road freight network
- DHL Freight opens new office in Kazakhstan
- Direct transport routes to Europe, Russia and China
"This new transit point makes a faster delivery time for our customers possible – not only for Europe, Russia and China but also in Kazakhstan itself. At the same time, this investment will contribute to further economic growth of this country, which has the key role as the access point to Central Asia", explains Stefano Arganese, CEO of DHL Freight Central Eastern Southern Europe & Americas, Middle East, Africa.
The new DHL Freight facility is situated in the largest warehouse park in the fast-growing industrial area close to Almaty, Kazakhstan’s largest city. This location at the crossroads of two major transport routes – the Transport Corridor Europe Caucasus Asia (TRACEA) and the Great Almaty Circle Motor Road (BAKAD) – ensures optimal connections.
The premises in Almaty offer a full range of logistic services, including bonded warehousing and customs brokerage services as well as online tracking, registration and maintenance of goods via a warehouse management system. Container terminal services available include cross-docking, shunting and crane services, and customs and bonded storage.
With the new facility and road freight services offered, the company will supplement its existing business in Kazakhstan and reinforce its logistics network. DHL Global Forwarding has been operating in Kazakhstan since 2007 and coordinates ocean and air freight transport from six offices throughout the country.
