DHL commences US-Australia cargo flights


Leading global express delivery service DHL has expanded its intercontinental air network with the addition of a US to Australia flight that improves transit times door-to-door by up to one day, the company announced.
The new twice-weekly flight from its America's hub in Cincinnati to Sydney, with a refuelling stop in Honolulu, deploys a Boeing 747-400 freighter with a payload of 113 tons that is operated by Polar Air Cargo Worldwide. The freighter returns to Cincinnati via Hong Kong.
The new service comes amid projections that this trade lane will grow 20 per cent in 2012. DHL Express Asia Pacific CEO Jerry Hsu said the service "follows hot on the tailwinds of our March launch of our Round-the-World flight from Hong Kong to Los Angeles, Leipzig and back to Hong Kong."
The scheduled service flies from Cincinnati to Sydney Thursdays and Cincinnati-Sydney-Melbourne Sundays. Integrated road feeds operating from Sydney to Brisbane, Canberra and Melbourne are designed to offer next day morning deliveries in these cities.
A company noted that the US accounted for 12.5 per cent of all imports into Australia in 2011, making it the second largest source of imports overall after China. US-Australia trade achieved a year-on-year growth of eight per cent in 2011, with high value goods such as engineering equipment and vehicle parts among the top categories of imports.
