DHL eCommerce Opens New Distribution Center in Manassas, VA

Press Release: Weston, FL February 21, 2024

  • The company is relocating from Maryland to Virginia to increase capacity to handle more volume
  • The facility’s automation will improve efficiencies and speed up final mile delivery

DHL eCommerce, a division of the world’s leading logistics company, DHL Group, recently relocated from its Elkridge, MD distribution center to a 138,500 square-foot location in Manassas, VA. The new distribution center enables DHL eCommerce to process more B2C domestic volume with approximately 130 employees while supporting its solid customer base in Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic states.

The new facility, located at 11400 University Blvd. Manassas, VA 20109, is approximately 30 minutes from Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD). It is double the size of the previous location with 41 dock doors and combines warehouse, meeting rooms, training, and office spaces.

The facility has environmentally friendly features, such as four EV charging stations, Building Management System, clear story windows and electric HVAC. In addition, it houses two large line sorters that can each process 14,000 parcels and packages per hour.

“We anticipate that the demand for e-commerce will continue to grow, and as a result, we have expanded our U.S. footprint and Manassas is an important part of DHL eCommerce’s five-year growth plan,” said Lee Spratt, CEO of DHL eCommerce, Americas.

In 2023, DHL eCommerce relocated to larger facilities in Phoenix, AZ; Salt Lake City, UT; Orlando, FL; Hebron, KY and opened wholly owned distribution centers in Stow, OH; Kansas City, MO and Chicago, IL.
