DHL Express establishes its presence in Istanbul

DHL Express has invested 135 million euros ($151.75 million) in Istanbul Airport where it currently operates a 42,000-square-meter facility, reports the Daily Sabah.

Explaining the company’s investments in Turkey, DHL Express Turkey CEO Claus Lassen said: “Istanbul has an excellent location. It is possible to reach a great number of countries with a two or three-hour flight from Istanbul. We are close to the Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa thanks to Turkey’s location. If the conditions demand us to grow further in Turkey, we will expand our operations.”

Istanbul Airport, one of Turkey’s largest infrastructure investments, provides access to 41 countries within a three-hour flight time and to 66 countries with five-hour flights.

Lassen pointed out that the company has enjoyed a very good first half (H1) this year, securing double-digit growth. “Most of the expansion comes from export operations. I believe that our company will continue to grow in the second half of the year,” he said. In reference to e-commerce operations, Lassen drew attention to the sustainable growth of the sector in Turkey. “E-commerce constitutes 15% of our operations. Our main activity area in e-commerce is business-to-business (B2B) operations that expand continuously. Despite the ups and downs in the Turkish economy, we are optimistic in our projections for the country,” he added.

He added that the DHL Express headquarters have strong confidence in the Turkish market since the country’s economy and the labour force is in good shape despite the fluctuations in the economy.
