DHL starts Vietnam/Hong Kong LCL service

   DHL said Tuesday it is starting weekly direct less-than-containerload service from Ho Chi Minh City to Hong Kong.

   Container terminals in Ho Chi Minh City handled an estimated 4.2 million TEUs in 2010, more than double the volume in 2007, while last year Vietnam’s gross domestic product reached $102 billion, DHL said.

   “The service provides our customers in Vietnam with a faster and more competitive ocean freight option for shipments to their trading partners in the U.S., Canada, China, Japan and Taiwan,' said Amadou Diallo, chief executive officer of Africa and South Asia Pacific for DHL Global Forwarding.

   The service will cut an estimated three days off typical transit time, to about seven days. The service is operated by Danmar Lines, DHL’s in-house non-vessel-operating common carrier.
