DHL Express expands Asia Pacific air network capacity
DHL Express has expanded its airfreight capacity between the Asia Pacific and the U.S to cater to rising intra-Asia demand. With over 2,000 tons in total capacity every week, the additional flight routes allow DHL Express to increase delivery speed amidst surging shipment volume in the Asia Pacific.
To cater to the intercontinental cargo demand, an aircraft, operated by AeroLogic, the joint venture cargo airline of DHL Express and Lufthansa Cargo, will fly six times a week from DHL Express’ Central Asia Hub in Hong Kong to Cincinnati Hub in the U.S. This B777F aircraft is part of a recent delivery of the original order of 14 aircraft made in 2018.
“DHL Express remains committed to supporting our customers in growing their global footprint and entering new markets. We are investing close to EUR 750 million in our ground infrastructure and air network in the Asia Pacific to ensure we respond nimbly to changing market needs. As economies recover from the global pandemic and income levels rise, we expect the intra-Asia market to grow substantially, with a corresponding increase in demand for express logistics services propelled by the thriving e-commerce sector,” said Ken Lee, CEO, DHL Express Asia Pacific.
