Since July 5, 2021, DHL Express Macedonia, the largest courier company in the field of express transport and logistics, has increased the capacity of its fleet in Macedonia. For the first time at Skopje Airport, the 36.4 meter DHL Express BOEING 737-400SF aircraft with 23 tons capacity, flew in. This aircraft will operate 5 days a week, and twice a day will connect Macedonia with the rest of the world. The modern aircraft meets all current EU standards in the field of safety and sustainability, and it will support the company in achieving its global goal: reducing emissions by 50% by the year 2025.

Since 2001, DHL Express Macedonia has been connected by daily direct flight to Skopje, at first with L-410 aircraft with 1.5 tons capacity, and since 2010 it has been connected daily to the international DHL network with its own An-26 aircraft, with 5 tons capacity. From now on, thanks to the new investment in the cargo aircraft BOEING 737-400SF with higher capacity and advanced technology, the customers from Macedonia will have the standard transit performance (overnight delivery) with the EU countries and the world, regardless of the size and weight of their shipments, at their disposal.

This provides huge opportunities for all companies in Macedonia, to expand and develop their businesses around the world. It is offering a possibility for cheaper, but also fast and safe transport of heavy or oversized cargo shipments (airport to airport), which was not the case in the past due to the limited capacity of the previous DHL aircraft, and because the commercial flights that arrived at Skopje Airport are with a small capacity, intended for personal luggage.

The improved flight schedule (early arrival in the morning and later departure in the evening), significantly improves the daily service performance for DHL customers in Macedonia, offering them to import their shipments earlier in the day, and to send the export shipments later in the afternoon.

DHL’s fleet provides the fastest delivery time for shipments to and from Macedonia, ensuring the highest security transport of the shipments. All import-export and transit procedures are performed fast by the professional brokerage team of DHL Express Macedonia.
