Courier services provider DHL Expressz Magyarország Kft will launch the construction of a logistics base near the Fly Balaton airport in Sármellék.
The 2,400 square meter facility will be constructed by the Hungarian-Irish Cape Clear Aviation Kft for a budget of Ft 600 million ($3.24 million). The Hungarian DHL arm will take over operation of the site in September, when the facility is scheduled to be completed. Company head Martin Studer said the Sármellék node will be the company’s second Hungarian base of operation, after the completion of its other complex in Budapest at the end of the summer. The new site will house DHL's Airbus A300 carrier planes, which will allow for faster completion of deliveries. The DHL Sármellék site is the first in what is planned to be a 25 hectares logistics park, where numerous investors are expected to settle in the coming years. (Gazdasági Rádió, Magyar Hirlap)
