The hub will act as a link between the Middle East, Europe and North Africa facilitating trade and enhancing the DHL express services through a state-of-the-art facility with onsite customs clearance.

The development of the hub was confirmed last month, with the signature of the agreement by Rhys Williams, Jordan Country Manager of DHL and Captain Suleiman Obeidat, Director General of the Jordan Civil Aviation Authority.

"We are delighted that DHL has chosen to develop a regional hub in Jordan and believe this initiative will build a long-lasting relationship and generate further investments," said Captain Suleiman Obeidat.

"Our aim is for Queen Alia Airport to become a cargo hub in the region and DHL is contributing to this vision," he added.

With both parties agreeing on the promising future of the initiative, Mr Williams stated: "The development of this hub represents a milestone in DHL's investment in Jordan and will drive DHL Express Services to new levels."

"In 2006 we will also be inaugurating two DHL Express Service Centres, located in the Shmeisani and Downtown areas of Amman to ensure we are conveniently accessible to our customers," he said.

The new hub will widen the range of services offered by DHL such as the delivery of time-based products, DHL Express Services.

The hub will be developed according to global standards with state-of-the-art equipment and machinery including electronic conveyers and x-ray machines and with a similar design to DHL's existing facility in Beirut.
