DHL Global Forwarding Inc. Key Developments

DHL Global Forwarding Inc. Adds Taiwan into its Pioneering and Fast Expanding North Asia Multimodal Network

DHL Global Forwarding has added Taiwan into its pioneering and fast expanding North Asia multimodal network. The sea link between Taiwan and mainland China offers customers the full-container load door-to-door service, DHL Railline, and will connect the leading Taichung port to Shanghai with a rail link to Warsaw via Suzhou, which also serves as a base for over 10,000 Taiwan-funded export-oriented enterprises. DHL now offers three multimodal rail services between mainland China and Europe. The sea link that added Japan and now Taiwan into the network means that customers all over North Asia now have an alternative to sea and airfreight - as do their trading partners across Europe - and access to benefits such as reduced transit times, costs and CO 2 emissions. Similar to the Japan service originating from Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Kobe and Hakata launched last year, the new multimodal Taiwan-China-Europe service will offer freight costs savings of up to 85% and CO 2 emissions by up to 90% compared to air freight with shorter transit times than ocean freight. The seamless scheduled service will use a combination of trucking, sea and rail solutions to move cargo from Taiwan into DHL Global Forwarding China's rail freight solution which reduces the delivery time by between 10 and 21 days, depending on origin and destination pairs, compared to solely using ocean freight. Using the DHL Railline service, customers can block out single containers, wagon groups or whole block trains. A true door-to-door service, DHL's multimodal solution for Taiwan uses any and all combinations of rail, ship and road to connect the market's businesses to Europe with the reassurance of high security and last mile delivery by truck or rail. From Europe, the multimodal service is also available via rail through mainland China and sea to Taiwan for import shipments. Customers now have more choices and more flexibility whether their cargo are being shipped from Taiwan, Japan, mainland China or Europe.

One area is meant for pharmaceutical products that must be stored at constant temperatures between 2 to 8 degrees, while the second one dedicated to a controlled temperature range of between 15 to 25 degrees Celsius.
