"This facility represents a milestone in our journey of becoming both the global market leader in the logistics and transportation industry, and our customers' first choice," he says.
Remund also highlights the importance of ORD's Modernization Program, which he says is reducing delays, increasing capacity and meeting increased demand for companies doing business with the airport.
"We wanted to continue partnering with an airport that is investing and taking concrete steps to meet its future growth - something we are always looking to do as a company," he comments.
Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD) continues to progress toward its goal of becoming the North American leader in global air cargo with the recent opening of a million landside warehouse and more airside development in the works.
ORD joined forces with Aeroterm, a private real estate developer that specializes in airport industrial projects, to add the new 491,000-square-foot freight facility to its landscape.
While the bulk of the building is warehouse space, it also includes a three-story office component.
Remund notes that two elements make the facility especially appealing to DHL customers: Its Foreign Trade Zone status reduces the amount they must pay in Customs duties, taxes and tariffs; and carriers can receive cargo for direct loading into containers, because it's a Bonded Container Freight Station.
When it opened in January with cargo heavyweight DHL Global Forwarding as its tenant, airport officials considered the event an important step toward making Chicago a leader in global trade.

"O'Hare is one of Chicago's key economic engines," says Michael Boland, acting commissioner of the Chicago Department of Aviation. DHL Behemoth Construction of the new facility began in November 2013 and was completed at the end of last year.
"With DHL's investment, we are ensuring that O'Hare International Airport will continue to be a powerful economic engine and one of the world's leading transportation hubs." DHL Global signed a 10-year lease with Aeroterm, which, in turn, has a 40-year lease with the city. factsfigures Project: Landside Cargo Warehouse Location: O'Hare Int'l Airport (Chicago)Cost: million Owner: Aeroterm Leasee: DHL Global Forwarding Warehouse Size: 440,000 sq.
