DHL relocates Tulsa operations


DHL Express has announced the relocation of its Tulsa, Oklahoma, service centre operation to a new 23,730 sq ft location within the city’s industrial area. Intended to accommodate 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 an increase 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, Oklahoma, the new $1.1m facility will allow for earlier deliveries and later pickup cut off times and will be equipped to process 3,000 pieces per hour.

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 a faster, more efficient service. In addition, the building is strategically situated so that it is about a one-minute drive to a major DHL customer fulfilment centre and a five-minute drive to the Tulsa International Airport.
