DHL shortens link between China and US
China – DHL has launched a new direct Less than Container Load (LCL) service from Shanghai to Atlanta, reducing transit time by at least 7 days.
The current LCL freight for that route is shipped by sea to Los Angeles, where it will be unloaded from the consolidation container and combined with other freight before heading to Atlanta.
The new service from Shanghai will bypass the re-handling in Los Angeles, with consolidation containers transferred directly to the railway station. DHL believed this offers higher efficiency and also reduces the risk of damage and loss. In addition, it increases carbon efficiency by 16.73%.
Kelvin Leung, North Asia Pacific CEO for DHL Global Forwarding said, “China and US are vital trade lanes for global businesses, with exports from China totaling over US$296 billion in 2009.”
