DHL Freight has opened a new freight terminal in Marseille with a cross-deck area of 3,204m2. It sports 35 gates and a total space of 3,632m2. The new logistics hub will offer the consolidation and deconsolidation of Less-than-Truckload shipments.
“We are really excited to expand our network of road freight services and modernize another very important hub in the Mediterranean. In light of increasing demand for our services, it is of utmost importance that we do everything to offer sustainable, efficient, and reliable logistics solutions to our customers. We subscribe to successful and sustainable business practices. This new site near Marseille will allow us to continue to do exactly that,” says Uwe Brinks, CEO DHL Freight.
Connecting the continents of Europe and Africa, the terminal in Marseille will also use its capacities to become an important gateway to and from Tunisia.
Focused on sustainable operations and compliance with the climate energy bill, DHL Freight ensured that solar panels would cover at least 30 % of the roof surface.
In addition, the parcel operator recently introduced the GoGreen Plus service to reduce CO2 emissions for road transport by investing in low- and zero-emission technologies such as electric vehicles and alternative fuels, be it biogas (Bio-LNG or Bio-CNG) or hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), for its linehaul as well as pickup- and delivery services. This new service is also available for customers in Marseille and throughout France.
