: DHL Global Forwarding, the leading international provider of air, sea and road freight services, on May 3 announced the launch of its second around-the-world scheduled flight, to connect Asia, Europe and the US.
This is in response to the strong growth in demand for air freight capacity, chiefly for outbound services from Asia and on the popular transpacific route. The Boeing B747-400F freighter will operate a South Korea-China-Europe-China service, in addition to transpacific east- and westbound flights that includes Shanghai, China, and Cincinnati, US.
With a capacity of more than 100 tons per flight, the bi-weekly scheduled flights provide significant and reliable capacity on the transpacific route from Shanghai, China to Cincinnati, US from where it continues to Incheon, South Korea. Following which, it will connect Incheon, South Korea with Wuxi, China and continue on to Frankfurt-Hahn in West Germany, before returning to Shanghai, China.
