CHICAGO—On Friday, DHL Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight service, celebrated the groundbreaking of their new $35 million facility at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. The building will have 53,000-square-feet of office space and a 423,030-square-feet warehouse, enough to accommodate more than 500 employees. It will be the largest building in the US for DHL Global Forwarding, a division of Deutsche Post DHL.

This financial commitment represents our long-term strategy to expand our business in the greater Chicago area and Midwest,” said Rob Betzer, vice president, US Central region for DHL Global Forwarding. “As a part of a network of US air freight gateways, this new facility will offer our customers more cost efficient alternatives to shipping their cargo given our location on the airport’s premises in the third largest city in the U.S., that serves as a crossroads for trade and boasts the largest intermodal-container capacity in the Western Hemisphere.”
