DHL to ship remote-controlled helicopters

DHL Global Forwarding is to transport remote-controlled helicopters, parts, and other hobbyist items this year for Shenzhen Youkeshu Technologies, the Chinese consumer electronics exporter.

The deal will see DHL establish a dedicated 24/7 freight control tower in Shenzhen to manage shipments of remote-controlled helicopters to more than 100 different countries; as well as providing air, sea, and rail freight services to critical hubs in Asia, Europe, and the United Kingdom.

“With more than 100,000 sqm of warehouse storage for around 100,000 SKUs from 4,000 different suppliers, we needed a solutions provider who could not only provide a wide range of forwarding modes and routes, but also manage our complex space and delivery requirements in an effective and timely manner,” said Marpo Wang, vice president, Shenzhen Youkeshu Technology.

“We have already worked with DHL for two years on a range of forwarding requirements and have great trust in their ability to coordinate immense amounts of freight traffic in an efficient and agile manner.”
