DHL Global Forwarding has added direct export services from Central Eastern Europe to Asia via the port of Koper in Slovenia.

The new export services connect Austria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia directly to Hong Kong, Keelung, Pusan, Shanghai, and Singapore.

Less-than-container-load (LCL) shipments forwarded via Koper will be much faster than those sent on the route via ports in northern Europe, leading to faster delivery of ocean freight from Central Eastern Europe to Asia, DHL said.

“Trade between North Asia and Eastern Europe has grown rapidly over the last decade at an average rate of 32 percent growth per year,” said Kelvin Leung, CEO for North Asia Pacific.

“China’s imports from central and east European countries grew even faster, registering an average annual rate of 38.7 percent. These figures substantiate a need for the introduction of these new trade routes to serve the North Asian markets more efficiently.”

Amadou Diallo, CEO for Africa and South Asia Pacific, said speed and connectivity were crucial elements for customers in Singapore as they were constantly looking for better trading experiences with counterparts in Eastern Europe.
