Technologies that connect everyone - DHL Freight Terminal for the Future

Forklift trucks that can weigh goods, automatic surveying systems that save manual effort and transmission errors, self-propelled vehicles that use zone control technology to avoid collisions and hazards.

These are just some of the innovations that ensure maximum efficiency, an optimized working environment and safety in the DHL Freight Terminal for the Future. Clever, extremely user-friendly systems such as the Smart Yard Manager integrate all those involved in the processes, including and especially the employees on the outside and inside the workshop. Flexible facility markings based on projection technology allow optimum use of the floor area at all times. What's more, smart heating and air conditioning controls, sustainable construction and alternative truck drive trains contribute to the Group’s GoGreen goal of reducing all logistics-related emissions to zero by 2050.
