DHL Freight launches new pan-European road option

[ September 3, 2013   //   ]

DHL Freight has introduced a new Eurapid road service offering day-definite lead times and priority treatment for less-than-truckload shipments across Europe. Features include full end-to-end visibility and a charging structure based on simple rate cards for shipments up to 2.5 tonnes.

The service is aimed especially at the technology and fashion sectors, says CEO of DHL Freight,  Amadou Diallo. DHL Eurapid is already available in 14 countries including the UK, as well as Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. Additional areas will be connected to the network in coming months.

Typical journey times are  24 hours from from Frankfurt in Germany to Barcelona, Spain and a dedicated customer service team handles bookings and enquiries, with same-day pick-up for shipments booked before 12pm. The service also allows the transportation of dangerous goods and other services such as cargo insurance, customs clearance and customized reports can be booked if needed. With Eurapid DHL Freight has the ambition to meet and simplify the logistics and supply chains of its European customers and help them remain competitive.
