DHL Express has added freighter flights between Miami and Buenos Aires for the first time as it looks to cut delivery times between the locations.

The new six-times-per-week flight will be operated by Panama-based DHL Aero Expreso with a B767-300 freighter offering 52 tons of capacity per flight.

The service will operate between Miami International Airport (MIA) and Buenos Aires, Argentina (EZE), with a stopover in Santiago, Chile (SCL), before returning to the US.

The express firm said that the new flight will improve delivery times for US origin shipments, resulting in a 10% increase in shipments clearing Customs the same day the flight arrives in Argentina, and a 50% increase in shipments being delivered the same day they are cleared.

“Service for shipments originating in Argentina have also improved, enabling 100% of shipments to be exported, at the latest, the day following the pick-up,” DHL said.

The company added that the service is its first dedicated network flight serving Argentina.

DHL added that it has, over the last few years, been expanding its presence in the Americas.

In 2021, the company added Chile to its dedicated network with a direct flight from the US.

In 2022, Brazil was incorporated into the network with more than 600 tons of cargo capacity per week.

Last year, DHL Express introduced several new routes, including a flight to and from Vietnam and the US as bilateral trade increased, adding 102 tons of additional capacity per flight; a new route between Japan and the US, also in response to the increasing international shipping needs between these two countries, adding 102 tons of additional capacity per flight, six times per week.
