DSV expands airfreight charter network to meet peak season demand

By Rachelle Harry

To accommodate anticipated high demand during peak season, DSV has increased its airfreight capacity with the addition of charter services.

From this week, the logistics giant is operating part charters twice weekly from Belgium to New York, where trucking connections “support reliable feeding and distribution within the US”.

It has also added an additional weekly round trip between Luxembourg and Huntsville.

The company said its airfreight charter service is ideal for handling special cargo such as pharmaceuticals, electronics, oversized oil and gas equipment, helicopters, cars, radioactive and explosive cargo, as well as high-value goods.

Mads Ravn, head of global airfreight procurement at DSV, commented: “Production is picking up across the transatlantic, and with belly capacity down by 50% year on year, we are again expanding the DSV air charter network to meet demand.

“New York will be added this week with twice weekly part charters, and we are expanding our capacity on the legacy DSV Panalpina route from Luxembourg to Huntsville and back with a third weekly rotation.”

DSV uses less congested airports — such as Luxembourg and Huntsville — in its air charter network “to ensure faster turnaround on the ground and reduce the risk of delays”.
