DHL, a provider of international express and logistics services, has established two new strategic air routes from Paris and Frankfurt to the U.S. The new connections feed directly into DHL's North American overnight Express network, enabling U.S. importers and shippers from Germany and France and some neighboring countries to send next-day delivery shipments to the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
"DHL is seeing continuously high demand for transatlantic express services and the two new routes will help customers on both sides of the Atlantic to improve their export and import flows," explains John Pearson, CEO for DHL Express Europe. "Canada, the U.S. and Mexico remain very important trade partners for the European markets and for DHL Express the transatlantic trade lane is a key growth area."
The new direct dedicated flights between Paris and Frankfurt and DHL's main North America air hub in Cincinnati will provide DHL customers with overnight delivery capacity to the U.S. DHL has enhanced its air routes from Europe to North America in the past year by investing in a fleet of new Boeing 767F aircraft and establishing connections from Leipzig and East Midlands to Cincinnati and New York.
DHL is part of Deutsche Post DHL.
