DHL, the world's leading express and logistics company announced the launch of the DHL Domestic Airfreight service in China. To date, DHL Global Forwarding, one of DHL's business units providing air and ocean freight services, is the first international forwarder to obtain the CATA (China Air Transport Association) domestic airfreight license, allowing them to operate within 17 Chinese cities.

DHL Global Forwarding Domestic Airfreight is part of DHL Global Forwarding's earlier announcement on the US$20 million investment plan to further enhance the company's network infrastructure, human resources development, as well as products and services to meet anticipated business growth in China.

With this launch and its First in China strategy, DHL is the only international logistics company offering both Domestic Express and Domestic Airfreight services.

“China has become one of the most significant logistics markets worldwide, with an abundance of open regulations and huge growth potential.

We are confident that the license to operate and gain entry into the domestic airfreight market will provide fresh opportunities and improved management of heavy airfreight from door to door for our customers,” said Peter Landsiedel, CEO – Asia Pacific, DHL Global Forwarding.

“Thelaunch of DHL Global Forwarding Domestic Airfreight service is a strategic direction for us to expand westwards into second and third tier cities in China, allowing DHL to work more closely with our customers, who are developing their production base in the hinterland.”
