DHL adds 17 new direct LCL ocean freight services throughout the Americas
The network expansion has new direct services with set weekly schedules on each trade lane
DHL Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight specialist within Deutsche Post DHL Group, announced today it has added 17 new direct Less than Container Load (LCL) ocean freight services throughout the Americas. These allow customers to send cargo via set weekly schedules on each trade lane and use DHL Global Forwarding’s network.
DHL claims that the new trade lanes offer more frequency and better reliability, while helping customers reduce inventory.
In 2018, DHL Global Forwarding has launched outbound and inbound lanes from the US and Latin America to Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.
“Our network of LCL experts are able to provide customers with an end-to-end service to handle all their shipping needs and we ensure a smooth transition from freight collection to delivery by offering outstanding assembly and distribution networks at both origin and destination,” said Tara Caputo, Head of LCL Americas, DHL Global Forwarding. “At DHL, we know the importance of helping our customers meet their commitments and deadlines, that is why we are always looking for ways to help them get their goods to market faster and more efficiently.
“Through our large global network, we are consistently looking at expanding our services to offer our customers greater oversight of their logistics chain and reduced risk of damage or loss,” said Caputo. “These new LCL services with regular direct schedules let customers properly plan their supply chains.”
