DHL brings 767 cargo service to Detroit

DHL said it has announced a new flight that enhances service for US importers and exporters based in Michigan.

Stationed at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport, the new Boeing 767-200 cargo flight enables DHL to provide earlier delivery times and later pick-up times, equally by one hour on average. International customers within Detroit and the surrounding areas, as well as in mid- and western Michigan, will greatly benefit from the new service.

The Boeing 767-200 flight operates daily between the DHL Americas Hub at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport (CVG) and Detroit, with a stop in Minneapolis to connect with freight routed to and from Canada. It is operated by Atlas Air, Inc., a subsidiary of Atlas Air Worldwide, a leading global provider of outsourced aircraft and aviation operating services.

DHL is a leading global brand in the logistics industry. Its family of divisions offer logistics services ranging from national and international parcel delivery, international express, road, air and ocean transport to industrial supply chain management. It is part of Deutsche Post DHL Group. The Group generated revenues of more than EUR56 billion in 2014.
