June 2006: (DHL) signed a long-term "strategic network alliance" with Malaysian cargo carrier, Transmile (TML). (DHL) recently spent $1.3 million upgrading its facility at Subang, and now will offer 10 weekly flights from the airport to its main Asia/Pacific hub in Hong Kong aboard (TML) airplanes. It previously reserved block space for cargo on (TML) flights, but said the expanded agreement will allow for more regular service and cut delivery time for Malaysian customers by a half-day for shipments to other countries in Asia, Europe and the USA West Coast.

The initial five-year agreement will allow (DHL) the flexibility to add new air services or upgrade existing service offerings to its customers.

Through the partnership, both parties will work closely on the strategic development of both intra-Asia and inter-continental air services, to meet the booming trade within the region and beyond. According to the World Trade Organization (WTO) International Trade Statistics 2005, intra-Asia trade in 2004 totaled US$1.2 trillion. In terms of intra-continental trade, this is second only to intra-Europe trade. Trade between Asia and Europe was worth about US$725 billion, while trade between Asia and North America recorded US$782 billion.

(DHL) has invested US$1.6 billion in Asia Pacific in the last few years to strengthen its network infrastructure, to meet the evolving demands of customers.
