DHL links China and Turkey with LCL
Asia - DHL has launched two Less than Container Load (LCL) services between China and Turkey, shortening cargo shipment times by up to five days.
The first LCL service connects Shanghai and Izmir in 25 days, while the second LCL service between Ningbo and Istanbul takes 27.
Kelvin Leung, CEO of North Asia Pacific for DHL Global Forwarding says Istanbul and Izmir are the two most important industrial and economic cities, with the former being Turkey's largest port. Hence, this new launch will benefit businesses between China and Turkey, especially small and medium enterprises.
According to Ministry of Commerce of China figures, the trade volume between China and Turkey was US$1 billion in 2000. The figure has grown exponentially since, with trade between the two countries reaching US$7.06 billion in the first five months of this year.
