DHL is inaugurating a new US West Coast international gateway at March Air Reserve Base in Riverside, Calif., today, promoting the facility as a hub at which transpacific airfreight can be sorted quickly for delivery in the western US. The site has been used as a domestic West Coast distribution complex since DHL invested $70 million in 2005 in the lease and development of the dual-use facility that is shared with the US Air Force Reserve. A $3 million upgrade and today's planned arrival of a freighter from Hong Kong will mark Riverside's launch as an international site. The $3 million was directed toward adding on-site offices for customs processing and clearance functions related to international shipments. DHL said it will operate two daily Hong Kong-Riverside freighter flights as well as daily all-cargo flights to the facility from Bangkok, Singapore and Taipei. Mar 27, 2007
