DHL is now offering a new direct less-than-container load (LCL) service from New York to Durban, South Africa. This service will serve as a gateway for U.S. customers interested in breaking into the African market with the option of transporting small amounts of cargo. The LCL weekly service schedule has sailings every Thursday from New York City.
As the largest container terminal in the Southern Hemiäphere, Durban serves as a strategic location for the transportation of goods to and from 18 destinations on the southern part of the African continent. This service will allow U.S. exporters and Southern African importers to ship cargo to and from New York City directly, rather than routing through Europe. As a result, this weekly service will reduce transit times, freight costs, and carbon footprint.
Customers will benefit from this service not only through accelerated transit times but also through added services such as IT management systems that control shipping transactions and DHL's Track & Trace offering full tracking visibility.
