DSV expands air freight capacity with new intercontinental air charter routes


DSV introduces three new intercontinental routes connecting five continents in order to accommodate customer demands in a global air freight market affected by lack of capacity due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 continues to impact global trade and the movement of goods for companies all over the world. Consequently, airports around the world are facing significant cargo congestion, and customers are facing a frustrating lack of capacity.

DSV continuously seeks to find alternative supply chain solutions for its customers and is once again expanding its air charter network. With the addition of three new intercontinental air charter routes covering five continents, DSV adds a significant amount of air freight capacity to help customers around the world.

We know a lot of customers struggle with a tremendous amount of uncertainty and a general lack of capacity. Therefore, it is imperative for us to continue to provide new solutions to mitigate the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic for them,” says Mads Ravn, head of global air freight procurement at DSV.

We see cargo congestion at both seaports and airports around the world, hence it’s crucial that we seek to find alternative solutions. I am very pleased that we keep expanding our international air charter services. The aim is to offer more flexibility and security of cargo freight which is crucial and sought after by our many customers.”
