DHL Global Forwarding established a dedicated StarBroker charter division more than a decade ago, with offices in Hong Kong, Amsterdam and Miami. Since its inception, the StarBroker global team of experts handle charters from delicate cherries, technology products to heavy mining equipment from anywhere in the world on any type and size of aircraft. Each shipment is supervised at every point in the supply chain on a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week basis ensuring on-time arrival. Research has shown remaining demand for energy and infrastructure development in the emerging countries of Asia-Pacific and Latin America. Thus, as emerging countries continue to add power generation capacities and build physical infrastructure, demand for carrying machines and equipment that enable mining, will recover.
