DHL launches new service from India to Shanghai

Hyderabad: DHL Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight arm of Deutsche Post DHL, has launched two new weekly services connecting Nhava Sheva and Chennai ports with Shanghai for less-than-container load consignments.
Less-than-container load cargo is referred to shipments that are insufficient to fill a standard container — such parcels are combined and stuffed into a container for export or import.
The new direct services offer substantial saving in transit time, the company said in a statement. It takes 17 days from Nhava Sheva port to Shanghai and 15 days from Chennai to Shanghai, which would especially meet the requirements of the retail and automotive sectors.
