DHL, has announced its direct Less than Container Load service from Auckland to Suva.
The weekly service bolsters DHL’s existing airfreight service. With a transit time of just 7 days, the new weekly direct LCL service reduces the transit time by 2 days.
Global Forwarding M.D Brian Boom says due to its proximity, size and the main business language being English, Fiji is a relatively easy market for New Zealand exporters to service.
He says while New Zealand’s exports to the Pacific Islands are relatively small, it has been reported that they have been growing at an average rate of about five percent per year since 2000.
Broom adds with the launch of this new LCL service, DHL is helping exporters reach customers in Fiji and beyond in a more speedy manner.
