TORONTO: DHL is establishing two new air routes from Paris and Frankfurt to its main North American air hub in Cincinnati. The new connections are timed to feed directly into DHL’s North American overnight express network and will enable customers in Germany and France—along with some neighbouring countries—to send next-day delivery shipments to the US, Canada and Mexico.

“DHL is seeing continuously high demand for transatlantic express services and the two new routes will help customers on both sides of the Atlantic to improve their export and import flows,” said John Pearson, chief executive officer for DHL Express Europe. “Canada, the US and Mexico remain very important trade partners for the European markets and for DHL Express the transatlantic trade lane is a key growth area.”

In the past year, DHL has also established connections from Leipzig and East Midlands to Cincinnati and New York.
