DACHSER is expanding premium charter flight rotation
DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics is starting the next wave of its charter flight rotation service to China and back. The charter route has initially been scheduled to operate from mid-March to the end of the month. From 21 March, DACHSER USA will also be adding a new route between Chicago and Frankfurt to its existing charter service.
The new coronavirus is still having a serious impact on capacity in the air freight market. Because the situation is so volatile, capacity planning is becoming a real challenge. Now DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics is adding to its existing charter service between Frankfurt and China: starting March 16, the company will offer an air bridge between the US, Latin America, and the air freight gateway in Frankfurt for deliveries to Shanghai, China. DACHSER will charter 747s and integrate them into the rotation of flights from Frankfurt to Shanghai and vice versa. DACHSER will also offer an air bridge between the USA and Europe via the gateway in Frankfurt and include the Chicago - Frankfurt route in its charter programme. "Via our gateway in Chicago, we are able to respond to the needs of our customers to and from the USA with specific solutions," says Timo Stroh, Head of Global Air Freight. In this way, DACHSER offers its customers an intelligent solution for transport needs in transpacific trade and is responding to the current market situation with flexible solutions.
Premium air service for customers
“This programme puts us in a position to offer a robust and reliable premium air service to Asia for our customers in the Americas as well,” says Timo Stroh. “We are ready for whatever happens on the air freight market in the coming weeks, and fully appreciate being in a position to tackle the challenges of the future today.”
