DHL Expands Its CVG Hub Again
March 14, 2012
— DHL held a groundbreaking ceremony this morning to expand its package sorting facility at CVG. When completed in about 14 months, the expansion is expected to create 285 jobs, including 120 full-time positions.
The $47 million expansion “will provide DHL with the capacity to keep up with the tremendous growth in shipment volumes,” said Travis Cobb, vice president of DHL Americas hubs.
Such growth “is a direct result of customer loyalty and quality service, of which the Cincinnati hub and all our employees are such a tremendous part,” Cobb added.
CVG CEO Candace McGraw represented KCAB at the groundbreaking, which included top DHL officials from around the world. Signifying CVG’s importance to the region, the event was also attended by both Ky. Gov. Steve Beshear and Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson, Kenton County Judge/Executive Steve Arlinghaus, Boone County Judge/Executive Gary Moore and Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory, among others.
The CVG hub employs nearly 2,000 and is DHL’s main U.S. facility, and one of three “superhubs” across the globe. About 92 percent of the company’s volume in the U.S. flows through CVG.
