A track record of Excellence. Simply Delivered.

DHL was formed in 1969, pioneering the air express industry with its first route from San Francisco to Honolulu. Success was built on the innovative idea of sending documentation in advance of cargo arriving.

The DHL network grew quickly, travelling west from Hawaii into the Far East and the Pacific Rim, then on to the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

In 1982, another 30 countries and territories were added in one year alone. DHL then became the first air express company to open offices in Eastern Europe, and pioneers in China.

By the mid-1990s, customers were able to take advantage of the overnight network using routings via the multi-hub structure that was developing in the network.

In 1998 flights to Africa began and soon a second flight to JFK ensured extra freight capacity. Throughout the 2000s, customers also benefited from the constant upgrade in the DHL fleet.

Previously called Aviation Commercial Group (ACG), in 2007 ACG changed its name to Air Capacity Sales (ACS) to align with DHL Aviation’s new Global Aviation structure.

Fast forward to today and customers are able to access capacity on an extensive network of over 500 airports.
