Sweet home Alabama for DSV and LATAM Group

Sweet home Alabama for DSV and LATAM Group

DSV and LATAM Group are collaborating in the city of Huntsville, Alabama to offer their mutual clients a solution to the supply chain congestion. Tagged as the LATAM Star, services from Huntsville, Alabama are offered with direct service to Viracopos, Brazil. This route provides relief needed for a congested supply chain in offering a direct cargo load by DSV Air & Sea at the Huntsville International airport.

Voted as No. 1 on U.S. News & World Report’s annual Best Places to Live list for 2022-2023, Huntsville Alabama is an optimal origin and destination point for clients as a less congested option to more traditional cargo facilities in the nearby area.

This unique collaboration is a quick turnkey solution, loaded and controlled by DSV Air & Sea with the full commitment and lift by LATAM. Routed in return from Viracopos, through Bogota and Miami – this fullservice offer is a game changer for many looking for relief in this market. Weekly Monday morning departures are scheduled to arrive the same day in Brazil.

“DSV has grown its Air Freight competencies and volumes over the last years, and with that we will continue to build on our strong and growing charter network. The new Huntsville – Brazil – Bogota service is another add-on which expands the DSV Charter Network to the resurging Latin America region from the uncongested Huntsville International Airport,” said Mads Ravn, executive vice president, DSV Air&Sea.

“The relaunch of the route from Huntsville is proof of the opportunities created by the growth of our B767F fleet. This allows us to provide differentiated solutions to our clients, regarding origins, destinations, and frequencies, and strengthen our connectivity to, from, and within South America,” commented Andrés
Bianchi, LATAM Cargo CEO.
