THE freight forwarding specialist of Deutsche Post DHL Group, DHL Global Forwarding, has launched an air freight charter connecting Asia Pacific to Europe and the US to meet demand from customers in the technology, manufacturing and life science and healthcare sectors.

Managed by StarBroker, DHL Global Forwarding's in-house charter team, the twice-weekly charter originates from Chongqing, China and flies to Amsterdam, Netherlands; Chicago, United States; Incheon, South Korea before returning to China, according to a company statement.



Head of global airfreight DHL Global Forwarding, Thomas Mack, said: 'While some passenger airlines have resumed operations, the situation in the airfreight market remains volatile - especially as belly capacity is still tight.'



South Korea has seen its export of healthcare products rise year-on-year by 26.7 per cent in the first half of 2020, with pharmaceutical goods in particular increasing by 52.5 per cent. China has exported 28.5 per cent more medical devices in the first five months of the year as compared to a year ago. In 2019, China, the Netherlands and the United States were among the top ten importers and exporters of medical goods.



'Over the years, DHL has built up its expertise from globally certified facilities and staff to technologies that track shipments in real-time in addition to ensuring the integrity of such products throughout their journey. Getting the much-needed air capacity is the last piece in the value chain puzzle, so to speak, that ensures temperature sensitive products such as life-saving vaccines reach the communities-in-need,' added Mr Mack.
