SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 13 January 2021 – DHL Express, the world’s leading express service provider and Boeing announced today that the global logistics company placed an order for eight additional new Boeing 777 freighters. The investment marks a further step in DHL Express’ expansion of its intercontinental air network to meet customer demand in fast growing international express shipping markets. First deliveries are scheduled for 2022.

DHL Express has placed an order for eight additional new Boeing 777 Freighters to meet growing customer demand for international express deliveries.

 

“Although the current health crisis has pushed pause on several areas of life, global trade did not stand still,” said John Pearson, CEO at DHL Express. “Fueled by globalization, digitalization and the unprecedented demand of our customers during the recent peak season, our global e-commerce volume grew by more than 40 percent in Q4. With the order of eight new wide body freighter aircraft, we underline our conviction that e-commerce is an enduring megatrend. This is why we decided to act early and kick-off 2021 with this investment in our future.”

 

The world’s largest and most capable twin-engine freighter, the B777 supports future growth while providing outstanding reliability. Furthermore, the aircraft will contribute to DPDHL Group’s sustainability goals due to its fuel efficient technology reducing CO2 emissions by 18 percent compared to the legacy B747-400s.

 

“A highly efficient and reliable aviation network is key to our service capabilities enabling future growth,” says Travis Cobb EVP Global Network Operations and Aviation at DHL Express. “We are committed to providing the highest quality and efficient services to our customers at the fastest possible transit times.  At the same time, we are also committed to reduce our carbon emissions by modernizing our fleet with the most efficient aircraft type that is available in the industry. The Boeing 777 fits well into our intercontinental network and perfectly complements our sustainability goal to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.”

 

The 777 Freighter is the world’s largest, longest range and most capable twin-engine freighter with a range of 9,200 km (4,970 nautical miles) and can carry a maximum payload of 102,010 kg (224,900 lbs). It allows DHL Express to make fewer stops and reduce associated landing fees on long-haul routes, resulting in the lowest trip cost of any large freighter.

 

“We remain optimistic about our growth prospects underscored by the e-commerce boom and as globalization continues to assert its strength and relevance,” said Ken Lee, CEO of DHL Express Asia Pacific. “In addition to bolstering the approximately EUR 60 million that we have committed to boost our air network in Asia Pacific from 2020-2022, these continued aviation investment will equally help to ensure that we have the safest and fastest deliveries in the industry as we assist with the delivery of Covid-19 vaccines to countries all over Asia.”

 

Preceding the new order announced today, DHL Express had already taken delivery of the first ten new B777F aircraft as part of an original order of 14 aircraft made in 2018. These timely deliveries ensured that DHL could accommodate the unprecedented demand during the peak shipping season.

 

Boeing’s 2020 World Air Cargo Forecast anticipates significant increase in demand for new and converted freighters with a fleet growth of more than 60% over the next 20 years. This is reflected in the growing demand for cross border time definite shipments that DHL Express is experiencing. For this reasons both companies have also agreed on options and purchase rights for four additional planes.

 

With this step DHL Express underlines its long-term commitment as an enabler of trade around the globe. The company operates over 260 dedicated aircraft with 17 partner airlines making over 600 daily flights across 220 countries and territories.

gbafNews28

LEVALLOIS, PERRET – Media

 – 10
February 2021 – GEODIS, a leading global supply chain operator, provides
its customers with guaranteed space in an ultra-tight sea freight market from
China to Europe.



GEODIS provides its customers with guaranteed space in an ultra-tight sea freight market from China to Europe

 

The first 1,000TEU[1] capacity vessel, operated
exclusively by GEODIS, is scheduled to arrive in Hamburg on 28 February. This ship
is carrying a total of 435 forty-foot containers for customers who have found
it increasingly difficult to secure space with regular carriers at a viable rate.
The next vessel sailing is scheduled to leave Shanghai around 10 February.
Depending on demand, GEODIS will plan additional sailings over the coming
weeks.

 

Mathias
Hansen is Senior Vice President Global Ocean Freight for GEODIS, “We understand the current market
challenges resulting from unprecedented customer demand and the limitations of
ocean carrier capacity and sailings from China and other parts of Asia,” he
observed.  “We are working hard to find
solutions for our customers. Hence, this
exclusive vessel charter to supplement fixed long-term agreements we have with
core carriers.  We strive to deliver
certainty to our customers amid the unstable market.”

 

“These market forces have created variable
and unforeseen spikes in demand for Asian goods,” comments Onno Boots, GEODIS’ Regional President and
CEO for Asia Pacific. “Our primary aim is to offer multi-modal
solutions to our existing customers to enable them to ship on time and in a
reasonably economic manner. As an adaptable and innovative service provider,
GEODIS is permanently looking for alternatives including rail, ocean and air
products that fulfil this aim for shippers on the increasingly volatile Far
East West Bound (FEWB) trade lane.”

 

Ivan Siew, Managing Director, China, adds, “Ocean freight services out
of China have been in high demand, in the ride up to Chinese New Year and
beyond. We are focused on ensuring that our customers continue to depend on
GEODIS to deliver innovative solutions in accordance with evolving market
demands. As the biggest supplier of goods to the world, using all freight
modes, China is particularly affected by the changes in availability of
capacity and shipping containers. These ocean charters provide much relief to
the companies we serve and we are proud to be stepping up our response as the
situation changes.”
