DHL adds second B747F to round-the-world service

DHL Global Forwarding has added a second Boeing 747-400 freighter on its round-the-world service connecting the USA, Europe and Asia.

"Demand is currently exceeding supply mainly due to the large economies performing strongly. On major trade lanes volumes are high, but capacities are low - a trend that will continue," said Tim Scharwath, ceo at DHL Global Forwarding.

With a capacity of up to 100-tonnes per flight, the aircraft will connect Shanghai-Pudong Airport (China) to Cincinnati (USA), from where it will return to Incheon, South Korea. It will then fly to Wuxi (China) and Frankfurt-Hahn (Germany), before returning to Shanghai.

"The gap between the well-performing world trade with a high demand for cargo space on the one hand, and at the same time a difficult capacity situation on the other side, has encouraged us in our decision to further deploy self-controlled capacity to the market," said Scharwath. 

The B747-400F has been leased from Atlas Air on an aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance (ACMI) basis.
