DHL breaking ground for hub expansion


HEBRON, Ky. (AP) -- Officials from DHL Express and the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport will join local officials Wednesday at the airport in Hebron, Ky., to break ground for an expansion of DHL's Americas hub facility there.

DHL says it is investing $47 million to expand the hub and will create 280 new jobs at a 193,000-square-foot sort facility in the next 14 months.

The company says 90 percent of the DHL volume that enters the U.S. is handled by the hub.
