DHL Express Estonia is developing a new logistics facility at Tallinn Airport as its current building cannot handle growth expectations.
The express firm has signed a 15-year cooperation agreement with airport operator Tallinna Lennujaam to develop a new 7,260 sq m complex with a fully automated sorting system in the southern area of Tallinn Airport.
The facility is expected to be completed by the end of 2025.
DHL Express Estonia chief executive Kristina Laaneots explained the reasoning behind the new facility: “DHL Express’s current terminal is too cramped for us and no longer meets the needs and expectations for handling increased cargo volumes.
“The new cargo terminal at Tallinn Airport gives us the opportunity to introduce the most modern technology and provide our customers with an even better quality service.”
The development of the new facility is part of the airport’s Airport City International Business Campus, which aims to improve the air cargo and aircraft maintenance infrastructure and increase the non-aviation income.
