  • Benefits of "Direct Express" include cold chain storage operations and lift service.
  • “We are very excited about our new service down under.”
  • The 777-F has its own advantages as it's known as the most energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly aircraft.

Global logistics and transportation provider, DB Schenker, announced that it now offers speedy and reliable air cargo delivery to Australia through its newly launched “Direct Express” service. Specifically created to offer the fastest and most reliable air cargo service to the region, “Direct Express” begins every Monday morning with departure in Chicago with direct 777-300 freighter service.

“We are very excited about our new service down under,” said Chad Heller, DB Schenker’s Chief Commercial Officer in the U.S. “The U.S. is Australia’s third largest trading partner and represents a significant portion of imports to the country. A large portion of these imports include the automotive, pharmaceutical and industrial manufacturing industries, many of which are located in the Midwest. With speed-to-market becoming more and more critical, our new Direct Express – Australia service is well positioned to meet this need,” he added.

The 777-F has its advantages as well as it’s known as the most energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly aircraft. Additionally, its 102 metric ton plus payload provides more opportunities for increased capacity.

Additional benefits of “Direct Express” include cold chain storage operations, guaranteed lift during heavy or peak periods of the year for shippers, and a variety of shipping solutions for heavy and outsized products.
