DHL launches direct LCL services between El Salvador with Asia Pacific

DHL has launched new direct LCL services that connect San Salvador in El Salvador with Hong Kong and other major markets in North and South Asia Pacific.


These new DHL-operated routes enable shorter transit time between San Salvador and Asia Pacific.

El Salvador has the third largest economy in Central America, and in 2006 was the first country to ratify the Dominican Republic-Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR), which has boosted exports of processed foods, sugar and ethanol, and supported investment in the apparel sector.

In 2010, El Salvador established agreements with Taiwan and Japan in the framework of the Forum of East Asia-Latin America Cooperation in Tokyo. It has also opened diplomatic relations with Vietnam and Cambodia.

All of these agreements create greater logistics needs between Asia Pacific and Central America.

The new route between Hong Kong and San Salvador offers a 29-day transit time, which enables a closer connection with China, Taiwan, Japan, and Korea in North Asia Pacific in 29 to 46 days, as well as Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Cambodia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Australia, and New Zealand in South Asia Pacific in 39 to 59 days.

The new route also saves up to 11.5% on CO2 emissions.
