February 11, 2015: DHL Global Forwarding, leading provider of air, sea and road freight services in Europe and Asia, has invested RMB 115 million (Euro 16 million) to expand its Shanghai air freight facility, building up a new warehouse and 1,600 sqm cold storage facilities for Life Sciences and Healthcare customers, and housing key air freight and customer service teams on one site.

The new Shanghai air freight logistics center has been developed on the site of the existing DHL facility on No. 529 Haitian Yi Road within the No. 1 Customs Supervised Bonded Zone and is the only international freight forwarder there that provides temperature controlled storage in its own facility. 

Kelvin Leung, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding Asia Pacific said: "This development has been in the pipeline since 2010 and we completed construction last year with the aim of creating a super facility in Shanghai that's a one-stop logistics service shop for all of our air freight customers. Now DHL Global Forwarding can offer an integrated service that's wholly operated by our specialist teams -- all under one roof. Not only are we providing better service quality, we are also offering new and unique services too. DHL is the only logistics company in the Shanghai No. 1 Customs Supervised Bonded Zone that can offer customers cold storage in a multi-temperature controlled space."

The investment has allowed DHL Global Forwarding to increase both its operational capacity and expand its services to customers in the cold chain market with the addition of a 1,600 sqm temperature controlled storage area including a cool room, control room and refrigeration container operating at different temperature range from 2 to 8 degrees Celsius, 15 to 25 degrees Celsius and -18 to 0 degrees Celsius.

Steve Huang, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding China said; "The demand for cold chain services is increasing and we now have 20 times more capacity than we did. Not only do we now have the space but we are also offering a world class standard DHL Thermonet service. Our customers in China have peace of mind knowing that they can choose a seamless temperature controlled service that has complete integrity – from temperature controlled trucks, warehouses, transit shuttles to flights -- all continually monitored by DHL's smart sensors."

As part of DHL Thermonet network of Certified Life Sciences Stations, the Shanghai facility is audited against globally defined Good Distribution Practices to ensure conformity across the network.

DHL Thermonet provides seamless temperature visibility along the supply chain, 24/7 proactive monitoring and intervention based on pre-determined touch points and DHL's RFID SmartSensor technology, that is GDP certified. Temperature data and logistics events can be accessed via the proprietary LifeTrack IT platform that also houses all product-specific SOPs, facilitating early intervention and simplifying document control. DHL Thermonet has a global network of more than 80 Certified Life Sciences Stations.
