Two state-of-the-art express facilities have opened at Budapest airport, as part of the €160m (HUF50bn) BUD:2020 Development Programme.

DHL Express is the latest to launch at the warehouse and office complexes, which have automated sorting systems, and represent the largest air cargo development at Budapest airport to date, with a total land area development of just over 60,000 square metres.

“DHL Express has already been present in Hungary for more than 25 years. The new lease agreement between Budapest airport and DHL Express for another 15 years clearly reflects the commitment of Deutsche Post DHL Group to Hungary and the airport,” commented Zoltán Bándli, Managing Director, DHL Express Hungary.

“The 6,000 m2 warehouse capacity will give DHL space to accommodate the volume growth of our business, with the new state-of-the-art sorting technology, which includes fully automatic shipment processing, allowing us to process more than 6,000 pieces per hour, which is three times our current capacity.

More than 600 employees will be based at the two new express complexes, which are located in the area next to Terminal 1, further cementing the airport’s role as a regional leader for integrators.

The next freight phase of the BUD:2020 Development Programme will be the development of Cargo City next to Terminal 2, which is due to be completed in 2019.

The new facilities will provide centralised cargo operations, and expand the Hungarian hub’s cargo handling capacity to some 250,000 tonnes per year.
