International logistics provider DHL Express will open a new service centre on Queensland’s Gold Coast before the end of the year with the aim of growing its business there and in northern New South Wales.

The planned 3,000 square metre facility, to be built in the industrial suburb of Molendinar will feature nine on-grade roller doors to the warehouse area and two crossovers which will allow separate areas for customer access and truck deliveries.

The new centre will also be fitted with parcel lockers that are accessible 24/7 for customers to pick up their shipments at their convenience.

DHL Express Oceania CEO Gary Edstein says the centre will be designed to support small businesses.

"These are certainly exciting times for our Gold Coast operations and we are delighted that the project is well on track," he says.

Construction has already commenced on the Service Centre, with the new freestanding building located on Anisar Court, between Jade Drive and Harper Street, just off Ashmore Road – near existing Toll Priority facility.

The expansion comes after DHL Express Australia spent $20 million to upgrade its Melbourne Gateway Facility in 2015 and built its new $1.8 million Canberra Service Centre in 2016.

The company also extended its coverage into regional Tasmania, including Flinders Island and King Island, last year after partnering with Tasmanian pick-up and delivery agent Road Runners – allowing Road Runners to operate four DHL branded vehicles on its behalf.
