New DHL shipping facility opens at O'Hare Airport

CHICAGO (WLS) -- The city of Chicago said holiday shipping will get a boost with the Wednesday opening of a new facility at O'Hare International Airport.

This is the latest expansion by DHL at the airport. The $10 million air shipment facility is located at O'Hare's northeast cargo campus.

The e-commerce industry is rapidly growing. DHL officials said that's why the company continues to expand.

They chose Chicago for its strong network of transportation and workforce. O'Hare is a leading international cargo airport, ranking No. 2 in the country by value of shipments.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel will be on hand for the opening of the new facility Wednesday morning.
