DHL Express has placed a firm order for nine B767-300 Boeing Converted Freighters (BCF).

The additional freighters will help expand DHL’s long-haul intercontinental fleet in response to increased global demand for cargo capacity.

Geoff Kehr, senior vice president, global air fleet management, DHL Express, said: “The additional B767 freighters are part of our efforts to modernize DHL’s long-haul intercontinental fleet in order to fly eco-friendlier and more cost-efficiently.”

DHL has taken delivery of seven of a batch of eight 767-300BCF, that have been leased to DHL partner airlines in the Middle East and Latin America to support its expanding regional networks.

The B767-300BCF  can carry up to 51.6 tonnes up to 6,190 km.
