Dachser is responding to capacity bottlenecks caused by the coronavirus crisis by expanding its charter programme to include the Hong Kong–Frankfurt route.
The German logistics company now operates a weekly air cargo charter from Hong Kong to Germany, which is scheduled to operate until the end of the year.
“We’re seeing the Asian market pick up pace again and the rate level is rising, so there is less capacity available on the market,” said Timo Stroh, head of global air freight at Dachser.
“With this service, we’re responding to these conditions and offering our customers a robust and reliable premium air service between Hong Kong and Europe.”
This follows the Frankfurt–Chicago charter added at the end of July.
“By linking the Dachser European Logistics network with the dedicated services of Dachser Air & Sea Logistics, we create intelligent solutions for our customers’ transport needs, even under challenging market conditions,” noted Alexander Tonn, managing director of European logistics Germany.
