DHL shipping company just moved into its new 50,000-square-foot warehouse in Carrollton, adding 70 new jobs to meet demand for international commerce. Now, the company has two facilities handling incoming and outgoing packages in North Texas. Greg Hewitt, CEO of DHL Express, said the company wants to make DFW Airport an international gateway for packages from as far away as Asia and Europe, and the company is in talks currently with DFW Airport customs officials. The freight carrier also wants to open a third warehouse in Fort Worth, and they are currently searching for real estate to make that a reality. DHL’s current facility in north Grand Prairie near DFW Airport was at capacity, prompting them to open the Carrollton facility. The new location off Interstate 35E is centrally located for their delivery routes in the eastern half of the Metroplex, Hewitt said. DFW Airport is already a cargo hub which handled 829,019 U.S. tons of cargo and mail in 2016, up 12.7% from the previous year, according to the airport.
