DHL Freight announced that it has introduced fixed schedules and daily departures for groupage shipments on the trade lane between Sweden, Czech Republic and Austria. The new schedule means that cargo leaving DHL Freight’s hub in Helsingborg, Sweden, arrives the next day in Brno, Czech Republic, and reaches Vienna, Austria, a few hours later. The strict schedule has reduced end-to-end lead times from five days to three.
“We have modified this trade lane to address market requirements and our customers’ need for faster deliveries. The highly reliable and now improved door-to-door lead times will allow our customers to improve their production cycles and reduce internal inventory and fixed costs,” said Amadou Diallo, the Chief Executive Officer of DHL Freight.
Shipments arriving in Brno and in Vienna are expected to be delivered to customers in the Czech Republic and Austria the following day. Additionally, customers shipping to or from Hungary and Slovakia also benefit from improved lead time by up to two days, as cargo is consolidated in the Vienna hub and further shipped with daily overnight connections to other European countries.
