DHL eCommerce Solutions selects Fives to support its UK business expansion


Fives, one of the world’s most preferred partners for transforming supply chain facilities, has been selected by DHL eCommerce Solutions to automate its Coventry mega-hub and support its ambitious growth plan in the UK.

DHL eCommerce Solutions, one of the divisions of DHL, recently announced a €560m investment plan across its UK ecommerce operation, DHL Parcel UK. The investment comes following a 40% volume uplift since the start of 2020 and soaring demand for its ecommerce and B2B services. The expansion project is designed to deliver the right infrastructure to facilitate growth as well as putting the business at the forefront of sustainable and digital logistics.

To meet this growth plan, Fives, a long-time DHL partner, will be in charge of automating the entire facility: a new 25,000 sqm hub, which will open in early 2023 at Segro Park Coventry Gateway, located south of Coventry Airport.

This mega-hub will be equipped with the latest intralogistics technologies to automatically sort items of different sizes and weights at high-speed.
