DHL Express is moving to Barajas. The logistics company is going to abandon its current offices at the airport, located in the Eisenhower Business Centre, to move to the general services building at Aena’s air cargo centre. The investment for this move will amount to €6 million, according to reports from the group.
At its new home in Barajas, DHL is going to occupy a surface area of approximately 5,000 m2. The space is going to be renovated, at a cost of €3 million, so that it can be occupied for the next five years by the German multi-national, which will pay another €3 million to Aena by way of rent.
The logistics company plans to complete its move by September. The new location will be home to the group’s central departments, as well as its customer services platform, which comprises 400 people.
The Barajas operation strengthens DHL’s investment in Spain. The company inaugurated its new facilities at Sevilla airport in February; it spent €4.1 million on that project.
