DHL launches new Asia to Europe service

[ June 14, 2012   //   ]

DHL’s Global Forwarding air and sea freight arm has launched an intercontinental door-to-door distribution service from Asia-Pacific to Europe, following introduction of its DHL Door-To-More intra-Asia Pacific service. DHL Door-To-More combines DHL’s intercontinental air freight transportation capabilities with its European ground distribution network and, says the logistics specialist, customers will benefit from shorter transit time.

The service is currently offered out of Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore to over 50 countries across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. New outbound gateways will be added soon.

Amadou Diallo, CEO DHL Freight added that DHL Door-To-More would “significantly reduce” the complexity of supply chains, with a web-based abooking and shipment preparation system.It also features a single billing service, as well as end-to-end online track and trace.
The new service is response to the demands of hi tech customers who have turned to direct distribution to their end customers with transport from customer warehouses in Asia directly to multiple destinations across Europe, managed through one single platform. President and global head of technology at DHL, Rob Siegers,said the concept would improve time to market at minimum inventory cost and reduces the number of handover points.
