DHL Aviation and WFS renew cargo contract in France

Cargo UK & Europe
DHL Aviation has signed a new multi-year contract with Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) to manage freight at airports in France.

The partnership builds on a 14-year relationship in France, having signed their first contract in 2010.

The DHL hub at Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport plays a key role in DHL’s air strategy, providing air links to other hubs such as Leipzig in Germany, Brussels in Belgium and Casablanca in Morocco.

WFS also manages road freight services for the CDG hub from Leipzig and Brussels and freight reception points for DHL Aviation throughout Europe including Paris Orly, Bordeaux, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Nantes, Strasbourg, Toulouse, Basel-Mulhouse and Nice.

Laurent Bernard, VP Cargo France at WFS, said: “We have a strong partnership and this extension to our warehouse contract clearly shows our service performance satisfies DHL’s high standards. Maintaining this contract is very important to our business in France and helps to demonstrate WFS’ capabilities to DHL for wider partnership growth across our global network in the future.”

Filippo Capogreco, VP DHL Aviation, added: “We are proud to give continuity to an operational and business partnership that has worked well for years and with mutual satisfaction. We would like to thank John Batten (CEO EMEAA at WFS) and his entire workgroup of professionals for the quality work done so far and even more for the better work we will do in the future.”
