DHL Global Forwarding to handle 70 percent of worldwide LCL
Annual estimated volume of more than 20,000 cubic meters across all
MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As of now, DHL
Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight specialist of Deutsche
Post DHL Group, is responsible for the majority of Electrolux’s global
ocean freight Less-Than-Container-Load (LCL) shipments. The appointment
by the Swedish home appliances manufacturer comprises an annual
estimated cargo volume of more than 20,000 cubic meters, approximately
70% of the global volume, and includes shipments from all regions
including Asia, Oceania, North America, Europe and Latin America.
“Particularly for project shipments, urgent small consignments, and
spare parts distribution, LCL shipments are important to Electrolux, and
an integral part of our global supply chain. We have chosen DHL Global
Forwarding for this task due to the unparalleled global network coverage
and the high reliability DHL Ocean Connect LCL provides, and has
provided for many years now,” says Bjorn Vang Jensen, Vice President
Global Logistics at Electrolux.
DHL’s ocean freight network for LCL shipments includes more than 45,000
Container Freight Station point pairs which connect the globe. The
company’s “Shipped as Booked” policy guarantees that goods are scheduled
for a specific vessel and will ship on that vessel whether the container
is full or not. This has been a major criterion for Electrolux in the
selection process, since special project or spare part shipments need to
be shipped in various, fluctuating quantities and for which demand is
unpredictable. Moreover, these volumes are not necessarily sufficient
for a full container box all the time.
“We are extremely delighted to continue our long-lasting relationship
with Electrolux. This new nomination is a fantastic acknowledgement of
the service provided in other areas in recent years and our DHL Ocean
Connect LCL offering,” says Michael Young, Executive Vice President,
Global Head Marketing & Sales, DHL Global Forwarding.
Electrolux has been a DHL customer for more than 10 years. Other
services DHL employs for the company are global airfreight,
international supply chain services, customs brokerage and multi-modal
solutions including rail and trucking.
