DHL Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight specialist within Deutsche Post DHL, has launched a new weekly LCL (less-than-container-load) 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, reported PR Newswire.
Taiwanese exporters can now ship their cargo every Monday from Keelung or Kaohsiung, for arrival in Vienna 35 days after.
Offered through Danmar Lines, DHL Global Forwarding's in-house carrier, the new service drastically shortens shipping time by eight days, close to 25 percent, as it bypasses LCL transhipment hubs and reduces time spent on facility handling. The service is also over three percent more CO2 efficient than traditional routings.
