DHL Global Forwarding Americas is moving its headquarters from Plantation, FL, to the City of Doral in Miami-Dade County – shifting operations to a new Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design [LEED] certified facility. Located at 1801 NW 82nd Avenue, the new headquarters will house all of DHL Global Forwarding’s employees, currently located at the Miami Gateway, Miami branch and Plantation offices.
Employees located in Miami will begin relocating in October 2010, while those in Plantation will move to the new facilities towards the end of the 2010 fourth quarter.
“This move will be extremely beneficial for our operations because all employees will be located in the same facility,” said Hans Toggweiler, CEO of DHL Global Forwarding Americas. “It will allow for greater knowledge sharing and collaboration among our employees, and create an environment with increased operations efficiency that will enable us to better serve our customers.”
The 201,000-sq-ft headquarters is close to Miami International Airport, off of the Palmetto Expressway and the Dolphin Expressway, and will house a total of 220 employees. No further plans are in place for any of the other DHL business units to relocate and no interruptions to its operations are expected during this transition, the company noted.
