DHL Express said it has expanded air service this week with new, next-day intercontinental flights between the United States and Middle East and Asia-Pacific destinations, to meet increased demand along these trade lanes.
A direct U.S.-Bahrain flight will shorten delivery times for DHL customers by as much as a full day for shipments from the U.S. to Afghanistan, Bahrain, Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
DHL’s new 747-400F will connect from Bahrain to Hong Kong, enabling customers to enjoy a later pick up time out of Hong Kong for overnight service to North America on the new flight’s final leg from Hong Kong to Cincinnati.
DHL is part of Germany-based Deutsche Post. DHL USA is ranked No. 3 on the Transport Topics 100 listing of U.S. and Canadian for-hire carriers.
