Now in its eighth week of successful operation, the flight rotation that connects Europe and the US is still running smoothly and without any operational flaws
Back in July of this year, as a result of the numerous market requests for a charter service to connect Europe to the US and vice versa, DACHSER USA launched a weekly round trip transatlantic flight service between Chicago, US and Frankfurt, Germany.

DACHSER's weekly transatlantic flight service connects USA to Europe and vice versa for four consecutive successful weeks
Starting at the end of July this year, DACHSER USA's premium charter program was developed to expand its network capabilities and to offer clients fixed transit times and a better planning of capacity and prices.
Now, in its forth week of operation, the rotation program has executed flawlessly on all routes without delays or operational issues.
Short update on the general situation in the transport sector
In the second half of the year, the corona pandemic is still the predominant topic in the media. While at the beginning of the pandemic new findings on Covid-19 were being announced almost daily and many updates were also published by DACHSER on loading restrictions in Europe as well as in America and APAC, something like a "new normality" has now returned.
At the moment, there are no longer any universal country or customer restrictions. We would therefore like to ask our customers to clarify individual restrictions such as closures, changed opening hours etc. with the recipients of the goods themselves. We are closely monitoring the further course of the corona pandemic and will keep you informed immediately of any developments. Should new loading restrictions be imposed, these will be published again via our website.
If you have any questions on this subject, please contact your local contact person at the respective DACHSER branch.

DACHSER strengthens its Interlocking presence at Frankfurt Airport
On 1 July 2020, DACHSER strengthened its networking between the Air & Sea Logistics and European Logistics business segments at Frankfurt Airport and is now bundling air freight import traffic for Germany and other European countries at Frankfurt Airport.
Once the air freight arrives at Frankfurt Airport and is accepted into the air freight warehouse, it is fed directly into the DACHSER European Logistics network, which has a branch office at the airport. With Europe-wide delivery from Frankfurt via the network, DACHSER thus offers its customers a uniform and reliable solution from the point of departure overseas to delivery in Europe. It is now also possible to offer customers end-to-end monitoring of their consignment via eLogistics.
If you have any questions in this regard, please contact your personal contact person at the relevant DACHSER branch.
