“The construction start for the new warehouse in Rheinbach is another important step in our strategic partnership, in which DHL is building and managing three integrated, high-performance distribution centers for Eaton in Europe,” explains Karsten Schwarz.

“This investment reflects the trust and strategic partnership we have with Eaton, who have leveraged our logistics expertise for the past decade.”

DHL and Eaton have made a deal for the supply chain firm to support Eaton’s European electrical business from three sites – in Germany, the UK, and the Czech Republic – for three years.
