DHL Supply Chain, Plantation, Fla., announced plans to construct a distribution and warehouse park in Dorchester County, S.C. The $100 million investment is projected to create approximately 450 new jobs.

The company purchased 125 acres, now called DHL Commerce Park, to construct three new buildings, totaling 1.7 million square feet. The first facility is expected to be completed in Q1 2020.

“We have seen significant growth in this area of the country, and customers are even asking us to evaluate opportunities in South Carolina specifically,” says Steve Hess, vice president, real estate development. “With that in mind, we got ahead of the curve to offer premier facilities in one of the hottest emerging markets in the country.”
