DHL Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight specialist within Deutsche Post DHL, has announced the launch of a new temperature controlled air freight service between Brussels and Cincinnati and vice versa. The DHL Aviation B747-400 freighter aircraft will operate the six times per week flight in each direction offering reserved space for Life Sciences products.

Real-time tracking and temperature measurement data is available on each flight and can be accessed via a dedicated web portal.

“With this service we are further enhancing our dedication to the Life Sciences industry and the changing world of regulations within the industry sector. This is the first of many routes with a dedicated airfreight service for temperature-controlled products. More of them are planned”, says Ingo Alexander Rahn, EVP global head of air freight, DHL Global Forwarding.

The aircraft employed on the route have four controllable temperature zones that are monitored constantly. Temperature measurement and shipment tracking is an integral part of DHL’s Thermonet product and LifeConEx Premium service. All airport handling processes, including those on the apron, are handled by DHL in full adherence to Good Distribution Practice requirements.

All operations in Brussels will be handled in DHL Global Forwarding’s dedicated and GDP certified Life Science facility.
