DHL Global Forwarding adds another around-the-world flight
DHL Global Forwarding has added another around-the-world flight in response to the high demand for air freight.
The division is deploying a second dedicated Boeing 747-400 Freighter to connect the US, Europe and Asia.
In a statement issued today (5 May), DHL Global Forwarding said that it was “responding to strong growth in demand for air freight, chiefly for outbound services ex Asia and on the conventional transpacific route, fueled by almost all industries”.
In addition to the first around-the-world air cargo service that has been established in September 2017, this second Boeing 747-freighter will be operating a network which includes the United States, South Korea, China and Germany.
With a capacity of up to 100 tons per flight, the aircraft will be flying on the transpacific route from Shanghai Pudong Airport to Cincinnati, USA from where it returns to Incheon, South Korea. Afterwards it will connect Korea to Wuxi, China continuing to Frankfurt-Hahn in Germany, going back to Shanghai-Pudong Airport. With the re-routing of the first service to Wuxi Airport as well, DHL Global Forwarding will offer twice weekly departures from Wuxi, China to Frankfurt-Hahn – Germany.
