DHL adds Cincinnati routes
DHL Express said Tuesday it has established an additional daily intercontinental route from Hong Kong to Cincinnati in response to increasing demands for services from South China and Hong Kong to North America.
Customers will have a later pickup time out of Hong Kong and Pearl River Delta, and overnight service to North America.
DHL Tuesday also launched a direct route between Cincinnati and Bahrain to facilitate the increased trade between North America and the Middle East. The route shortens delivery time by one day.
DHL also said it expects to open a North Asia Hub in Shanghai in early 2012. The $175 million facility is located in the West Cargo Area of the Shanghai Pudong International Airport.
DHL said Jerry Hsu, president of Greater China Area, will take over as chief executive officer of Express Asia Pacific, which comprises China, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South East Asia, India and South Asia, Oceania and other markets and territories in the region.
