DHL Global Forwarding, the Deutsche Post DHL Group’s specialist for air and ocean freight, has established three new direct connections between Germany and the African continent. Transit times for Less Than Container Load (LCL) shipments on the three new lanes between Bremen and Tema (Ghana), Cape Town (South Africa) and Mombasa (Kenya) will be shortened by 5 to 6 days.
Amadou Diallo, CEO, Africa and South Asia Pacific, DHL Global Forwarding, said, “In 2010, Germany exported some 20 billion Euros worth of goods to Africa1. The new LCL services to Tema, Cape Town and Mombasa will help German companies transport their goods faster to Africa, enabling more efficient trade. These new direct ocean freight lanes allow additional savings of up to 10% in CO2, when compared with the previous offering.”
“Movement of goods between Germany and Africa is on the upswing. We note a growing demand among our customers for transports to these emerging countries. Our LCL services take account of this demand,“ says Peter Grabsch, LCL Gateway Manager aOcean Freight Germany.
