DHL Freight UK plans to restructure its UK business and make up to 600 job cuts from 16 sites across the country.
A company statement said:
Following a strategic review of its UK Operations, DHL Freight UK has identified some business proposals and has now entered into a period of consultation with its affected workforce.
“The proposals would involve restructuring the UK business which currently employs 600 staff across 16 sites in the UK.
“All other DHL business units including DHL Supply Chain, DHL Global Forwarding and DHL Express will not be negatively affected by the business proposals.”
The company has already closed sites in Hemel Hempstead and Cardiff as well as a partial closure of its Exeter depot, resulting in the loss of 100 jobs.
