DHL moves to Budapest Airport Business Park
DHL Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight
specialist within Deutsche Post DHL relocated to its new premises situated in
Budapest Airport Business Park today. 3 000 sq meters of office space and 7 800 sq
meters of warehouse are at the company’s disposal.
„Before year’s end further DHL unit will move into the same business centre, which
will strengthen synergies, contribute to a more effective operation and further
improvement of our services. When choosing our new facility it was substantial for us
to find a site near the airport and also easily accessible through public roads” – told
Zoltán Rezsek, CEO of DHL Global Forwarding.
150 employees of the company – operated formerly in Vecsés – started their work on
the new site this morning and around 80 employees of DHL Freight will join them at
the end of the year. The newly completed building offers a significantly larger
warehouse capacity for the companies.
„Budapest Airport is proud to welcome the first long-term tenants of the Airport
Business Park in the crew of DHL Global Forwarding. Global Forwarding is DHL's first
business unit that decided to use the airport as their base of the whole business
activities - from the operations to the management.” remarked René Droese, Property
Director of Budapest Airport. He added: „Airports are always seen as catalysts of
economic growth in their region and the same is true for Budapest Airport. With an
almost 10 million Euro investment by Budapest Airport and the excellent construction
work within a challenging short time frame we were able to establish a base for further
growth and opportunity to create more new jobs for DHL in its airport location.”
The construction of the office block and warehouse complex started in December
2012, and the first tenant, DHL Global Forwarding moved into its offices in the newly
built facility today.
