In a move highlighting the increasing importance of trade agreements between China and Central American nations, DHL announced the launch of its new direct LCL service linking those two destinations. According to spokesmen, LCL (Less than container Load) service will enhance connectivity and trade from Hong Kong's strategic port to one of the busiest ports of Central America, as well as the trade flows between Asia Pacific and Central and South America. DHL currently offers the industry's widest coverage with more than 700 weekly point pairs from 24 North Pacific terminals sailing to 30 destinations in Central America. The newly added LCL service underscores DHL's move to respond to growing trade volumes from Asia Pacific as well as Hong Kong to Guatemala.
