DHL moves to Budapest Airport Business Park
DHL Global Forwarding, Freight, the air and ocean freight specialist within Deutsche Post DHL and one of the leading providers of road freight services in Europe, will move to the new Airport Business Park development area offered by Budapest Airport. DHL Global Forwarding and DHL Freight will have both their offices and warehouses located at the airport.
DHL already has its aviation cargo facility at Budapest Airport. Now, two off-airport branches will move to the newly created Business Park area of Budapest Airport from locations in Vecsés and in Budapest. The move will save costs and help DHL to streamline their operations in Hungary. Due to the facility structure, DHL can now work even more closely across the divisions and therefore improve the services for their customers.
After having secured a binding building permit for the new facility consisting of 3,000 square meters of office space, 7,800 square meters of warehouse and 5,700 square meters of maneuvering area, Budapest Airport and DHL have signed a lease agreement with DHL Global Forwarding and DHL Freight. According to Budapest Airport’s plans the construction of the new facility will start in December 2012 and the first DHL-tenants will be able to move in summer 2013.
“This is a very important milestone in the life of Budapest Airport in the post-Malév recovery. We could make an attractive offer to our new partners in a very competitive real estate market in Budapest. This will be the first step in creating a Business Park development area in the Southern areas of the airport which by the way will be easily accessible through public roads from the adjacent areas and will have excellent road connections both through road 4 and M0 ring highway”, said René Droese, Property Director of Budapest Airport.
