DHL Express, the world's leading international express service provider, recently relocated its Tulsa, Oklahoma, service center operation to a new 23,730 sq.-ft. location within the city's sprawling industrial area. Intended to accommodate further anticipated international trade growth and enhance local service, the new facility is nearly double the size of the previous location.
DHL made the decision to move its Tulsa operations to a larger upgraded facility after experiencing a surge in both inbound and outbound shipments associated with customers in aviation repair, oil and gas and international e-commerce. Located at 11610 E. 27th Street, North Suite J, Tulsa, OK, the new $1.1M facility will allow for earlier deliveries and later pickup cutoff times, and will be equipped to process more than 3,000 pieces per hour.
Staffed by 28 Certified International Specialists, the facility accommodates more vehicles for package loading by couriers from the interior conveyor system. It features a state-of-the-art X-ray machine, three additional dock doors and new equipment for aircraft container (ULD) handling, all of which will help DHL provide even faster, more efficient service. In addition, the building features a spacious lobby and is strategically situated so that it is about a one-minute drive to a major DHL customer fulfillment center and a five-minute drive to the Tulsa International Airport.
"We're excited about the new location, which will allow us to further exceed on our customer promise: 'Excellence. Simply Delivered,' " said Richard Saavedra, VP and General Manager of the Southeast Area for DHL Express. "The improved unloading areas for incoming shipments will maximize our processing capabilities and enable our couriers to start delivering sooner - ultimately increasing efficiency and benefiting our Tulsa customers."
