DHL Global Forwarding Launches New Weekly LCL Service from Taiwan to Austria

DHL Global Forwarding has launched a new weekly LCL service from Taiwan to Austria. The new service, which arrives in Vienna via Koper, Slovenia, supports the strengthening of trade links between North Asia and Eastern Europe, as well as the Baltics. Taiwanese exporters can now ship their cargo from Keelung or Kaohsiung, for arrival in Vienna 35 days after. It is imperative that as a company, DHL Global Forwarding has its finger on the pulse of the industry and can identify the needs of exporters. Offered through Danmar Lines, DHL Global Forwarding's in-house carrier, the new service drastically shortens shipping time by 8 days, close to 25%, as it bypasses LCL transshipment hubs and reduces time spent on facility handling. The service is also over 3% more CO2-efficient than traditional routings.
