This Europe-Pacific AIR-SEA service saves importers approximately 60% in cost compared to air freight and the same savings in transit time compared to using ocean freight

 

SINGAPORE
– Media OutReach – 2 July 2020 – Due to the
coronavirus pandemic, it is no secret that shippers face hefty air freight
rates globally due to the limited capacity, caused by sharp declines in
passenger flights that typically account for more
than 50%
of freight capacity worldwide. In providing innovative solutions,
DHL Global Forwarding announced a multimodal option that brings significant
cost-savings to Australian and New Zealand businesses importing goods from
Europe. This service combines the speed of air freight for the first leg of the
journey where goods from Europe are consolidated into Singapore or Hong Kong,
which then travel via affordable and sustainable ocean freight to their
destinations.

“As countries gradually recover in the aftermath
of Covid-19, we are seeing an increase in demand for products other than
essential and medical goods. Local businesses in Australia and New Zealand are
in need of an alternative to pure air freight transport, which has not
recovered to pre-Covid rates due to the capacity crunch worldwide. With our
strong global network and local expertise, we were able to swiftly create
viable solutions including this Europe-Pacific AIR-SEA service, to help
companies rebuild their business as they adapt to the new normal,” said Charles
Kaufmann, CEO, North Asia South Pacific, DHL Global Forwarding and
President/Representative Director, DHL Global Forwarding Japan K.K.

 

Australia’s
second largest trading partner, Europe has seen its exports to the country
increase steadily from €28.1 billion (AU$47 billion) in 2006 to €40.7 billion
(AU$68 billion) in 2016, with passenger motor vehicles, medicines and
pharmaceutical products amongst its key
exports
. New
Zealand
ranks Europe as its top source of imports, accounting for €8.7
billion (NZ$15.5 billion) in 2018.

The leading air, sea and road freight service
provider has seen mounting demand for the service from exporters in Germany,
Italy, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands shipping a diverse range of
commodities from baby food, electronics and shopping bags to automobile parts,
solar power units and heavy machinery.

 

“Strategically located in the midpoint between
the origin and destination, Singapore and Hong Kong were chosen as the
locations for the consolidation hubs due to their large capacity, high
frequency of flights, and ability to ship “freight all kinds” (FAK),” Kaufmann
added.
