DHL introduces a new daily air service between the United States and Western Canada, designed to meet the growing needs of customers shipping across the northern U.S. border. The new service provides competitive transit times in key Western Canadian markets, as well as additional express service options, including next-day delivery for shipments weighing over 150 pounds between the entire U.S. network and Western Canada.
With this launch, DHL now provides daily direct service from its principal U.S. air and ground hub in Wilmington, Ohio, to Calgary, Alberta, with a subsequent stop in Vancouver, British Columbia. The service offers customers early arrivals and late departures in the Calgary and Edmonton markets, as well as shorter transit times to and from Vancouver. The service also enables next-day delivery for larger non-conveyable shipments, which represent a critical segment of the overall U.S.-Canada cross-border volume shipped by key industries, including automotive, energy, agriculture, and forestry.
The new U.S.-Canada service is DHL's latest move under its North America Trade Lane initiative, which is designed to increase the speed and efficiency of cross-border shipments. Earlier this year, DHL opened two gateways in Mexico and introduced a new service in Southern Texas.
