DHL Ex­press to add freighter to Mum­bai

Cargo Talk - - Front Page -

To ful­fil the de­mands of western re­gion, DHL Ex­press plans to start a freighter ser­vice to Mum­bai. “The western re­gion is now ser­viced from New Delhi by the in­ter­na­tional ex­press courier ser­vice. With the in­tro­duc­tion of Mum­bai ser­vice, DHL’s own planes will be touch­ing down in three In­dian ci­ties,” says, RS Subra­ma­nian, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent and Coun­try Man­ager, DHL Ex­press In­dia.

“There is scope for one more freighter to Mum­bai. It is only a mat­ter of time. We need to see the vi­a­bil­ity. Sooner than later, we will have a freighter ser­vice to Mum­bai. If it hap­pens, nearly 80 per cent of our cargo will go in our planes and de­pend less on com­mer­cial planes.

“The de­lay in in­tro­duc­ing a freighter in Mum­bai is also due to in­fras­truc­ture con­straints in the air­port to turn­around freighters that can­not be kept on the ground for over 90 min­utes,” he fur­ther added.
