DHL Express, a leading global express service provider, has started the first-ever flight network to carry the inbound and outbound shipments of Bangladesh. This flight network will connect Bangladesh to over 220 countries and destinations through DHL’s Bangkok hub.
K-Mile Asia, a Bangkok-based airline, will operate the Boeing 737 freighter, with a capacity of 180 tons or more based on client demands, five days a week. The commencement of the network flight will ensure that the standard of service provided to the clients are consistent and corresponds to the increase in demand for air cargo capacity.
Sean Wall, Executive Vice President for Network Operations and Aviation in DHL Express Asia Pacific, said regarding this event, “Historically, trade has been a key driver for economic growth. According to the recent DHL Trade Growth Atlas, there are now new centres of trade emerging across South Asia, with Bangladesh especially proving to be a reliable export and import market. I am excited that we are playing our part in Bangladesh’s economic growth story as we help to boost cross-border trade activities with this new international freighter.”
Md Miarul Haque, Managing Director of DHL Express Bangladesh, said, “DHL Express has always contributed to the trade growth of Bangladesh. As the economy is growing rapidly, DHL wants to keep investing ahead of the curve so that we can continue supporting the growth trend of trade. We strongly believe that the new flight not only supports the growth of our export industry but also facilitates growth for a diversified economy. This inclusion of this flight will also give DHL a huge competitive advantage and strengthen its position as a market leader in Bangladesh.”
According to the press release, all available options to reinforce the air capacity to ensure that only the optimal standard of services is being provided to the clients are continuously being assessed by DHL Express while they manoeuvre through complex customs processes and regulations.
