DHL introduces new US cargo service in Detroit

DHL announced the introduction of a new Michigan, US based air cargo service out of Detroit Metropolitan Airport which is expected to enable DHL to provide earlier delivery times and later pick up times, each by an average of one hour.

Karsten Aufgebauer, Senior Vice President and General Manager for DHL Express in the Midwest said, “Our expanded service window and the additional capacity of this aircraft are essential to accommodate the increasing volumes that are being generated by major automotive companies and suppliers as well as other businesses based in the region.”

The Boeing 767-200 flight is due to operate daily between the DHL Americas Hub at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport and Detroit, with a stop in Minneapolis to connect with freight routed to and from Canada. It is expected to be operated Atlas Air, a subsidiary of Atlas Air Worldwide.
