DSV extends freighter network

[ February 26, 2021   //   ]

DSV has is in the process of adding three new intercontinental routes to its existing freighter network to make up for a lack of capacity on scheduled carriers due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Airports around the world are facing significant cargo congestion, and customers are facing a frustrating lack of capacity, said head of global air freight procurement Mads Ravn.

The DSV Air Charter Network is managed as a fully in-house DSV network and includes road freight to and from the airport, document handling, freight handling and planning for loading air freight units (ULDs).

A weekly direct route from Luxembourg to Guarulhos (São Paulo, Brazil) started on 21 February with 100 tons of capacity. A four times a week return service between Luxembourg and Johannesburg will follow on 1 April.

A weekly round trip between Chicago and Shanghai starts on 1 March.
