New construction 13 CityHubs DHL Parcel
Hercuton is building half of the 26 new CityHubs of DHL Parcel. The CityHubs are located on the outskirts of all urban areas, enabling the ‘last mile’ to be carried out in the most efficient and sustainable way.
At a CityHub, an average of 90 trips per day depart, of which 60 are during the day and 30 in the evening, with short routes covering 100 to 200 addresses. Short routes enable rapid sustainability because they can be carried out with electric delivery vehicles, cargo bikes or other small vehicles. All new construction takes place according to the highest sustainability standards of BREEAM. The buildings are gasless, equipped with solar panels and driven with a fully electric fleet.
Seven locations have now been commissioned and we will start with Zoetermeer, Amsterdam, Breda, Tilburg and Emmen in 2021.
