“Over the past few years, local consumer shipping has accelerated, with many South Florida-area residents shipping to their native countries in South America and the Caribbean,” said Chet Paul, SVP of Commercial for DHL Express U.S.
“This new mobile pop-up is strategically located at the Cypress Creek Station shopping mall, offering both nearby businesses and residents the speed and convenience they need for international shipping.”
The new ServicePoint is 100% powered by a solar paneled system, helping reduce energy consumption and contributing to the company’s mission to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
The pop-up store is located at 6201 N. Andrews Ave., Fort Lauderdale, and provides local customers and businesses with more accessible options to accommodate their growing international shipping needs. The first South Florida mobile pop-up location is at the DHL Regional Headquarters in Plantation.
DHL Brings International Shipping & Energy Efficient Options To Sellers
An efficient point-of-sale system is capable of processing shipments to U.S destinations as well as any of the 220 countries and territories DHL serves. Supplies such as bubble wrap, packing tape, and DHL-branded boxes are available at the mobile unit.
To create this mobile DHL ServicePoint location, DHL worked closely with Flexetail, a leading designer and builder of mobile shops that offers brands an affordable opportunity to test products, explore new markets, and launch new lines.
In addition to these new company-owned stores, over 3,500 independently owned DHL ServicePoint Partner stores continue to play a critical role in the company’s retail strategy within the U.S. market. All locations provide DHL Express international express shipping services (among other brands), global knowledge, and expert advice to help businesses reach the international marketplace.
