DB Schenker has added charter capacity out of India as it looks to meet capacity constraints.
The forwarder will offer charter capacity on a weekly flight operating on the route: Bengaluru-Doha-Munich-Chicago.
The flight is in addition to its existing charter operation covering Mumbai, Frankfurt and Atlanta.
Both flights connect three continents as part of the forwarder’s Global Flight Operations Network.
The company told Air Cargo News that the new route would cover a wide range of verticals such as automotive, consumer and retail, electronics, industrial and chemicals, healthcare and aerospace.
“We are also handling temperature-controlled shipments with secured handling within “thermal blankets” and ULD movement end to end,” the company said.
“The global airfreight market is still facing enormous capacity constraints. For our customers, we create solutions where they are needed,” it added.
The new route is being operated by Qatar Airways Cargo utilising one of its B777 freighters.
