"It is key for DHL to continuously invest in strengthening our global network. Simply put, transporting our customer's goods to any corner of the world in record time is what we stand for. Today's hub opening underscores our priority to exceed our customers' expectations by improving our response time and shipment handling, while also representing the strong commitment we have to this fast-growing region," said Roger Crook, CEO of DHL Express, International Americas, during the hub's inaugural ceremony.
Total shipments by DHL Express Panama grew 19% in September when compared to the same months last year.
The purpose is to provide PyMEs (small- and medium-sized businesses) the information and resources necessary to grow on a global scale.
Copa Airlines, a regional carrier, increased its revenues for cargo in the first quarter of the year by 25.5 percent and the courier service DHL reported growth of 6 percent.
The company will invest $50 million to replace 4 Boeing 727-700 cargo planes with the more modern 757-200.
