DHL Express Update – New Flight to Argentina

 

With a capacity of 52 tons per flight, this new direct route benefits customers shipping between the U.S. and Argentina

DHL, the world’s leading provider of international express shipping, has announced the launch of a new dedicated network flight to Argentina. The flight operates six times per week between Miami International Airport (MIA) and Buenos Aires, Argentina (EZE), with a stopover in Santiago, Chile (SCL), before returning to Miami (MIA).

Operated by DHL Aero Expreso, the Boeing B767-300 aircraft will provide a gross payload capacity of 52 tons per flight. The new, dedicated network flight will improve service reliability and increase capacity to support DHL’s international shipping customers. This is the first DHL dedicated network flight serving Argentina.

“DHL remains steadfast and bullish in its belief in the power of trade, and how it continues to drive local economies, build prosperity and fuel entrepreneurship ” said Mike Parra, CEO of DHL Express Americas. “That’s why we continually invest in and strengthen our global network. The introduction of this new flight to Argentina reinforces our unwavering commitment to global trade by delivering faster and more efficient shipping and logistics solutions, and addressing the growing demand in the region.”

The new DHL network flight will improve delivery times for U.S. origin shipments, resulting in a 10% increase in shipments clearing Customs the same day the flight arrives in Argentina, and a 50% increase in shipments being delivered the same day they are cleared.  Service for shipments originating in Argentina have also improved, enabling 100% of shipments to be exported, at the latest, the day following the pick-up.

DHL Aero Expreso is a Panama-based airline that operates cargo services in Latin America and the Caribbean. The new flight to Argentina marks a significant milestone for DHL Express, as it continues to expand its dedicated network capacity in the region. In 2021, the company added Chile to its dedicated network with a direct flight from the United States. In 2022, Brazil was incorporated into the network as well, with more than 600 tons of cargo capacity per week. This flight also improved connectivity with Central America through its connection in Colombia.

Last year, DHL Express introduced several new routes, including a flight to and from Vietnam and the United States as bilateral trade increased, adding 102 tons of additional capacity per flight; a new route between Japan and the United States, also in response to the increasing international shipping needs between these two countries, adding 102 tons of additional capacity per flight, six times per week.

DHL EXPRESS OPENS NEW $84.5M HUB IN ATLANTA

  • DHL unveils its most eco-friendly hub in the Americas region, based at Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport
  • Up to 50% of the energy consumed at the DHL Atlanta Hub is generated on-site through solar-paneled roof

DHL Express, the world’s leading provider of express shipping services, today announced the grand opening of its Americas region hub based at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). With a focus on sustainability, the $84.5 million investment further strengthens the company’s connections and service capabilities between the U.S. and key global markets, increasing capacity, speeding transit times, and adding resilience to its network.

The DHL Atlanta hub also sets new standards for sustainability, generating up to 50% of its on-site energy consumption through 65,000 sq. ft of rooftop solar panels, preventing the release of 380 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually. The remaining energy consumed on-site is sourced from renewable sources through Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), guaranteeing zero emissions from electricity consumption. Moreover, the hub employs environmentally conscious features such as LED lights, electric forklifts, dock seals, and rapid rise doors, further minimizing its environmental impact.

“The new DHL Express Atlanta Hub represents a milestone in our ongoing pursuit of sustainability and technological advancement. It also exemplifies our belief in the power of international trade and recognizes the significance of Atlanta and the Southeast U.S. in the global marketplace,” said Mike Parra, CEO of DHL Express Americas. “By fostering commerce and bridging borders worldwide, this hub not only generates economic growth but also creates job opportunities in Atlanta. We take great pride in contributing to the prosperity of the communities where people live and raise their families.”

The DHL Atlanta Hub operates as a fully-automated facility, equipped with cutting-edge technology capable of sorting up to 20,000 pieces per hour. To ensure swift clearance of DHL customer shipments, the hub employs in-house Customs brokers and collaborates with on-site U.S. Customs and Border Protection personnel. Additionally, DHL implements advanced threat detection and security screening technologies, effectively preventing the entry of illegal and hazardous commodities into its network.

“Our commitment to safety extends to all our facilities, and the DHL Atlanta Hub not only prioritizes the well-being of our employees but also fosters their growth and success,” commented Parra.
