DHL eCommerce is to expand its distribution centre in Hong Kong to accommodate e-commerce export growth expected to reach €1.6 trillion by 2020.

The distribution centre will support growth from the southern region of China, such as Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Hong Kong, connecting e-commerce exports to 220 countries and territories worldwide, including the UK and U.S.

The centre has the capacity to manage over 70 million shipments annually and specialises in e-commerce exports weighing up to 2kg as well as handling special shipments such as lithium batteries – ideal for e-commerce sellers looking to export to an increasing number of markets internationally.

“Cross-border e-commerce continues to flourish in China with revenues rising over 80 per cent year-on-year to reach €12 billion (approximately 90.24 billion yuan) in 2017, out of which €4 billion (approximately 33.65 billion yuan) are in e-commerce exports,” said DHL eCommerce CEO Charles Brewer.
