DHL Express has made significant enhancements to its intercontinental and intra-Asian service offering. The introduction of additional wide-bodied aircraft to DHL’s global aviation network, coupled with adjustments to its intra-Asian connections, has opened up service benefits for customers on key trade lanes, particularly between the Americas and Asia. These enhancements will be launched by the end of April 2013.
The first major network enhancement will be the introduction of a direct connection between Japan and DHL’s Americas Hub in Cincinnati, United States. A daily flight from the Japanese industrial city of Nagoya to Cincinnati will establish a next-day deliveryservice to the US for all locations directly serviced by DHL in Japan.
A second enhancement will see DHL double the frequency of its wide-bodied freighter connections to Australia from two to four days per week. This route will be supported by the introduction of two new Boeing 767-300ERF wide-bodied freighters with a capacity of over55 tons.
