To deliver faster transit times and better service in mainland Penang, Perlis, and Kedah, DHL Express Malaysia has officially opened its new Prai Service Centre in Batu Kawan, Penang, on 17 May 2022. The new facility, which is five times the size of its previous location, occupies almost 2,400 sq. mts. of warehousing and office space. It is equipped with a solar panel system and energy-efficient infrastructure to cut the release of greenhouse gases by 26.9 per cent. Julian Neo, MD, DHL Express Malaysia, and Brunei said, “The boom in online shopping, social media, and express shipping led to record increases in our international inbound and outbound volumes. The positive trajectory is likely to endure as these trends prove their staying power and air cargo availability gradually returns to normalcy.”
