Posted on Friday, July 31st by Pallet2ship logo

As a continuous effort to modernize its fleet, DHL Express, alongside Boeing, one of the world's largest aerospace companies, have announced that DHL Express will increase its fleet with four 767-300 Boeing Converted Freighters (BCF). 

This acquisition represents a part of DHL's modernizing plan, for an eco-friendlier flight, and increases the cost-efficiency. The new aircrafts are configurated as freighters, according to DHL Express needs, and meet the rising global demand for express services.

SVP Global Air Fleet Management DHL Express, Geoff Kehr, declared: "We are excited to introduce additional B767 freighters to the DHL Express air network. We have operated the 767-300F model across our global fleet for many years and look forward to continuing investing in the platform by adding more 767-300BCFs. 

The freighter type offers a proven versatility and we appreciate the opportunity to further enhance efficiency while simultaneously improving our environmental footprint. This brings us closer to our Strategy 2025 goals and ensures we deliver the best quality service possible to our customers.

Boeing is committed to delivering the freighter capacity that DHL needs to succeed as one of the most trusted logistics and express cargo leaders in the world, said Ihssane Mounir, Senior Vice President of Commercial Sales and Marketing, The Boeing Company. We are delighted that they choose Boeing platforms to optimize their operations. Boeing has received 51 orders and commitments for the 767-300BCF to date.

DHL Express has always looked for innovative solutions, that will increase the efficiency of the network. The growth of cross-border e-commerce trade and also the increasing demand for intercontinental delivery expertise are expected, as a part of DHL Express's 2025 strategy. The main purpose is to modernize the global network, but also to reduce carbon emissions and fuel consumption. DHL Express operates over 260 dedicated aircraft with 17 partner airlines on over 3.000 daily flights across 220 countries and territories.
