DHL dodges traffic with Los Angeles helicopter service


DHL Express has introduced the helicopter service into its Los Angeles operation as a way to guarantee early morning 9:00 a.m. delivery service regardless of traffic bottlenecks. Initially used by specific financial services customers, this service will expand to include additional customers in the Los Angeles area.
"DHL is always looking for innovative ways to move our customers' shipments with the greatest speed and reliability," said Mike Parra, CEO of DHL Express U.S. "When business demands early deliveries at the 'speed of yellow', DHL Express brings additional assurance with a first-of-its-kind helicopter service to the L.A. market."
DHL Gateway at Los Angeles International Airport
International shipments arrive at the DHL Gateway at Los Angeles International Airport, with specific packages transported by helicopter to a dedicated heliport in the city center. A DHL courier meets the helicopter and provides the final mile deliveries.
The DHL helicopter, a "Twinstar" Eurocopter AS355, is operated for DHL by Helinet of Van Nuys, California, and can transport over 350 kg of letters and packages.
A DHL helicopter service is also used in New York, providing lifts from the DHL gateway at John F Kennedy International Airport to prime U.S. bank headquarters and Federal bank locations, making stops in central Manhattan and at New Jersey's Teterboro Airport to speed deliveries of important financial and legal documents.
