In response to the restricted air freight capacity situation caused by COVID-19, DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics has drawn up a charter contingency plan. As a result, customers can currently rely on a robust and reliable premium flight service from Frankfurt to China.
Due to the coronavirus epidemic, many airlines have discontinued their flights to China, leading to capacity bottlenecks in the market. The DACHSER Global Management Air team is therefore organizing its own charter flights to China. The first of several scheduled charter flights to Shanghai has now been successfully completed. On this flight, DACHSER transported various medical supplies.
Robust and reliable premium flight service to Asia This means the logistics service provider is offering its customers a robust and reliable premium flight service between China and the world. Further flights from Frankfurt are planned until the end of March, and options from Europe, the US, and Latin America are also being considered. “This dedicated solution enables us to offer our customers reliable transport capacities to China and thus respond to the restrictions associated with the novel coronavirus,” says Timo Stroh, Head of Global Air Freight at DACHSER.
