DB Schenker launches direct air freight service from Chicago to Sydney

DB Schenker has launched Direct Express – Australia –  a new weekly scheduled air cargo service from Chicago to Sydney, Australia.

The service offers direct 777-300 freighter service to Sydney, every Monday departing from Chicago.

With a payload over 102 metric tons, the 777-F provides more capacity than any other twin-engine freighter as well as being one of the most energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly aircraft effectively reducing carbon emissions as compared to most other aircraft currently in service.

Additional service features include:

  •  A 22:45 departure resulting in a late cut-off for shipment drop-offs
  • With a 12:05 Wednesday arrival in Sydney, shipments are Customs cleared with same-day connections for next-day delivery to most major markets in Australia
  • Cold chain storage operations in both Chicago, IL and Sydney, Australia
  • With the ability for block space agreements, shippers can get guaranteed lift during heavy or peak periods of the year
  • Shipments remain under DB Schenker’s single-source control
  • DB Schenker’s eSchenker web portal offers shippers 100 percent shipment visibility from pickup to delivery
  • A wide range of shipping solutions for heavy and outsized products
