DHL Supply Chain, ExxonMobil open new Texas logistics center

160,000-square-foot facility combines warehousing with MRO

WESTERVILLE, Ohio, Oct. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- DHL Supply Chain, the Americas' leader in contract logistics and part of Deutsche Post DHL Group, in partnership with ExxonMobil Global Services Co., cut the ribbon on a new logistics center in Baytown, Texas. The 160,000-square-foot facility will help ExxonMobil reduce inventory and optimize logistics for six refineries and chemical plants by serving as a regional distribution center for the maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) supplies that maintain production levels.

The Baytown logistics center combines several of ExxonMobil's nearby facilities that were managing warehousing and MRO inventory separately. The move is expected to generate a 15 percent supply chain cost reduction by eliminating regional inventory duplications and further optimizing the company's supply chain. The facility officially opens today and will be fully operational by mid-December.

"Helping our valued partners like ExxonMobil optimize their supply chains is our number one priority at DHL Supply Chain," said Terry Berrns, DHL Supply Chain's Director of Operations. "Because of our 10-year history with ExxonMobil and our expertise in warehousing and MRO, we are confident that this new logistics center will take the company's supply chain operations to the next level."

DHL Supply Chain has been an ExxonMobil supply chain partner since 2007. The partners currently manage 10 facilities together in the U.S. that account for 90 percent of ExxonMobil's U.S. MRO inventory.

"DHL Supply Chain knows our business and our industry, which is why we've partnered with them for this new facility," said Tom Albertson, Regional Supply Chain Operations Manager for ExxonMobil. "This improvement in our supply chain allows us to remain focused on meeting the world's growing energy needs."
