Under the patronage of H.E Eng. Mothanna Gharaibeh, Jordan's Minister of Information & Communication Technology, DHL, the leading global express and logistics provider, opened the doors to its newest state-of-the-
art logistics facility in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. The ceremony was inaugurated by H.E the Minister, in the presence of DHL Express Global CEO John Pearson, DHL Express MENA CEO Nour Suliman, DHL Jordan Country Manager Khaled Saleem as well as esteemed VIPs, prominent members of the business community, DHL customers, and media representatives.
John Pearson, CEO of DHL Express Global, said on this important occasion: "We are very proud to expand DHL's presence and to add another logistics facility to our extensive infrastructure portfolio in this part of the world. Growth and quality are the cornerstones of our global strategy, with MENA playing a significant role in our global network as this region has delivered great performance year after year. Over the past four decades, DHL has been committed to strengthening the region's connectivity to the global market, giving our customers access to high yield markets, facilitating commerce and supporting MENA's development into a central logistics center. Our investment will enable even better connectivity between Jordan and the world and will help support the growth of our customers through the ongoing boom in cross-border trade. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to be standing here in Amman in our 50th year opening a new facility along with our great customers and great employees - pretty much a perfect day."
DHL's newly built US$ 5.8 Million logistics centre, located in the Wadi Al Seer Industrial Area in Amman, comes in line with DHL's regional expansion strategy that has seen the company invest over US$170 Million in infrastructure developments across the MENA region in the last 5 years, to enhance its reach and logistics capabilities and meet the growing logistics demands of its local and regional customers for faster transit times and better network reliability.
