DHL, United Airlines increase services in Puerto Rico
United Airlines and DHL Global Forwarding have announced several significant growth and expansion initiatives in Puerto Rico. The two companies are working together to continue developing Puerto Rico’s life sciences and pharmaceutical industries by increasing widebody flights, and offering customers expanded cold chain storage solutions with three new temperature-controlled chambers operating at 15 to 25° C (59 to 77° F) in San Juan. The additional United flights will also offer additional opportunities for tourism to Puerto Rico, further boosting the local economy.
DHL will expand its San Juan warehouse to offer increased capacity for handling shipments that require strict temperature controls.
United Airlines, in part to serve the increased demand for moving temperature-controlled shipments by air, will add widebody aircraft flights between San Juan and the airline’s New York/Newark hub.
