The DSV Panalpina engine is warming up as the new company moves the first shipments through its combined network and the Charter Network in particular.
Aircraft engines usually fly from A to B attached to the wings of an airplane. Not in this case: On Thursday, the US Aerospace team of DSV flew an engine, or more precisely, engine parts, on the “Spirit of Panalpina” from Huntsville to Luxembourg. From there, the engine parts were trucked to Airbus’ production plant in Toulouse, France. It was the first time the new company served an existing customer through its combined network and the Charter Network in particular.
Since 1990 Panalpina has been the only major freight forwarding company to offer its Charter Network for air freight. Now it can act as an in-house carrier for the whole DSV Panalpina network. The network uses leased and chartered aircraft to guarantee capacity, and is structured to handle express and special shipments. Not only does the company control aircraft on specific routes, it designs and oversees processes on the ground as well, ensuring the best possible control from door-to-door.
