ERLANGER, Ky.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CVG–DHL Express, the world’s leading international express services
provider, today announced it will recruit approximately 900 new
positions as the company completes the latest $108 million expansion of
its Americas Hub at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport. The
expansion to a new day sort operation and projected growth in shipments
is expected to increase the hub’s workforce to more than 3,300 from the
current 2,400 employees.


In order to fill these new positions, DHL will hold a job fair on
Saturday, March 4, at the CVG Centre in Erlanger. Those hired should be
ready to begin work as soon as pre employment processing is complete and
no later than May 1st when the new Daytime operation is
scheduled to begin.

“We are excited to leverage our newly expanded Americas Hub and welcome
talented potential candidates to fill these new positions,” said Mike
Parra, CEO, DHL Express Americas. “As we look to the future, we know the
continued investment in motivated people is the key to ensuring that we
meet the demands of our customers and have the ability to handle the
continued growth and expansion that will occur at our CVG Hub location.”

This latest expansion features a new north ramp that’s built on 45 acres
of land and provides parking space for 16 additional planes, bringing
the hub’s total capacity to 65 aircraft gates. The expansion also
includes additional automated sorting capability and 40 new reload
positions that will enhance the hub’s ability to handle the growing
shipment volume expected to be seen in the United States and throughout
the Americas. It also adds new storage and warehouse space for ramp
equipment and shipping containers.

DHL has invested more than $280 million in its Americas Hub at the CVG
airport since 2009. The company’s Americas Region encompasses North and
South America as well as the Caribbean.

“DHL is a tremendous business partner at CVG, and we’re pleased about
their continued investment and job growth in our community,” said
Candace McGraw, chief executive officer, CVG. “These additional 900 jobs
is another demonstration of DHL’s positive impact on the Tristate
region.”

The expected shipment growth will require DHL to add a new day shift
seven days a week, beginning in May, to complement the evening shifts
currently running at the hub.

The new jobs at the DHL hub, an equal mix of full- and part-time
positions, offer health benefits and tuition reimbursement, as well as
allow for a variety of flexible work schedules. Those hired for these
new positions will also benefit from the company’s award-winning
