DHL Global Forwarding Launches New Airfreight Service for Emergency Logistics
DHL Global Forwarding recently launched a new service called DHL SameDay Speedline, focused on offering a mission critical solution for emergency shipments.
This new service offers 24/7/365 pickup and delivery, collection within 120 minutes and quotations within 60 minutes, and covers urgent delivery of spare parts, critical medical supplies or newly launched products. Although DHL SameDay Speedline is a multi-sector product, it‘s especially attractive and aimed for aerospace & aviation, automotive, electronics, energy and life sciences industries.
“The emergency shipment market is growing with just-in-time inventories for industries from aerospace and energy to manufacturing to adapt their supply chains. The need for mission critical shipment delivery to avoid line down situations continues to arise and requires a partner that has the global reach combined with the technology to provide transparency to each sector-specific logistical challenge. DHL SameDay Speedline fills this gap and provides added value through its many service features”, states Ingo-Alexander Rahn, Global Head of Air Freight, DHL Global Forwarding.
After surveying more than 200 customers from various industry sectors with emergency shipment needs, DHL Global Forwarding saw a need to develop this new product. “Our customers will choose DHL SameDay Speedline for the best flight options to meet just-in-time demand at an optimal cost-performance ratio”, said Mr. Rahn.
