DHL launches new LCL service from Taiwan to Austria


DHL Global Forwarding has launched a new weekly LCL (less than container load) service from Taiwan to Austria to strengthen trade links between North Asia and Eastern Europe as well as the Baltics, according to Shipping Gazette.
The new service will allow Taiwanese exporters to ship their cargo every Monday from Keelung or Kaohsiung, for arrival in Vienna 35 days after.
"With the Eastern Europe states expanding their appetite for Asian products, this new service supports the needs of Taiwanese traders to perform more efficient and speedy services to their customers there," said Kelvin Leung, CEO, Asia Pacific, DHL Global Forwarding highlighting the need to identify exporter needs.
Offered through Danmar Lines, DHL Global Forwarding's in-house carrier, the new service drastically shortens shipping time by eight days, or close to 25 per cent, as it bypasses LCL transshipment hubs and reduces time spent on facility handling.
According to the Bureau of Foreign Trade, plastic articles, electrical equipment and machinery account for nearly 50 per cent of our overall exports, said its managing director of Taiwan Kenny Mok in a company statement.
"We realise that Taiwan-based traders want to extend their product footprint and supply chains to the Eastern Europe markets of Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Macedonia."
Following well-established weekly LCL services from Taiwan to Germany, France, UK, Switzerland, Italy, Hungary, Poland, Sweden, Finland and Lithuania, this new service marks the most recent European route that DHL Global Forwarding has launched out of the Asia Pacific.
DHL currently operates the world's largest in-house LCL network with more than 2,000,000 cubic metres of LCL freight handled annually and more than 2,500 weekly point pairs from 45 Asia Pacific terminals sailing to 56 destination terminals in Europe, added the statement.
