DHL Express expands air network

DHL Express had introduced a daily flight between Japan and DHL’s American hub in Cincinnati, which will enable a next-day delivery service to the US and a two-day delivery service to the Japanese capital, Tokyo.
 
Both routes will be serviced by Boeing 747-400 aircraft with a capacity of over 100 tons.
 
A second enhancement will see DHL double the frequency of its connections to Australia, which will be supported by two new Boeing 767-300ERF wide-bodied freighters with a capacity of over 55 tons.
 
Stephen Fenwick, CEO, DHL Express Americas, said: “The US-Australia trade lane grew at over 13 per cent in 2012. The additional frequencies we are adding on this lane will ensure that trade between these two countries can continue to flourish over the coming years.
 
“These changes are aimed directly at responding to the market, improving DHL’s service to our customers throughout the Americas to Asia Pacific.”
