GERMANY-headquartered freight forwarder Dachser is again targeting customers in central Europe and China by offering them peak season freighter charters on a weekly Frankfurt-Shanghai-Frankfurt route.
The company said special items, including temperature-controlled and express goods, can also be sent anywhere in Europe and to northern China.
Global air freight head Timo Stroh was quoted as saying in a report by London's Air Cargo News: "We are expecting this year's peak season to be another strong one for air freight.
"Having our own charter means we can create premium capacity for our customers with fixed process and transit times.
"In doing so, we enable them to have extra freight volume even when capacity in the air freight market is tight."
