DSV and LATAM Group are collaborating to tackle US-Brazil supply chain congestion with a new air cargo service.

Tagged as the “LATAM Star”, LATAM together with DSV Air & Sea will offer a direct service from Huntsville International Airport in Alabama to Viracopos, Brazil.

Mads Ravn, executive vice president, DSV Air & Sea, said: “DSV has grown its airfreight competencies and volumes over the last years, and with that we will continue to build on our strong and growing charter network. The new Huntsville – Brazil – Bogota service is another add-on which expands the DSV Charter Network to the resurging Latin America region from the uncongested Huntsville International Airport.”

This collaboration is designed to offer a quick turnkey solution, loaded and controlled by DSV Air & Sea and transported by LATAM. Cargo is routed in return from Viracopos, through Bogota and Miami.

Weekly Monday morning departures are scheduled to arrive the same day in Brazil.

“The relaunch of the route from Huntsville is proof of the opportunities created by the growth of our B767F fleet. This allows us to provide differentiated solutions to our clients, regarding origins, destinations, and frequencies, and strengthen our connectivity to, from, and within South America,” commented Andrés Bianchi, LATAM Cargo chief executive.

LATAM recently received the third of four Boeing 767 converted freighters ordered as the airline group ramps up its presence in the all-cargo sector.
