DHL connects SG and Seattle
Singapore - DHL has launched another new direct less-than-container load (LCL) service, this time connecting Seattle to Singapore as the latter serves as a gateway to 16 destinations in South Asia.
The new direct weekly LCL service covers freight moving from Portland and Seattle and will reduce overall transit time between the US and Singapore by 12-14 days. Cargo shipped from Seattle to Singapore will reach within 25 days.
The latest LCL service serves to bolster the significant trade volumes between the US and Singapore. Singapore is the US' tenth largest export market in the first three months of 2010.
Sam Ang, Southeast Asia CEO of DHL Global Forwarding says the service will enhance US' businesses' access to Southeast Asia as MNCs and SMEs turn to ocean freight to enjoy greater cost efficiencies.
