How DHL Express Can Help you with your clinical trial logistics?


At DHL Express, we understand the significance of key trade lanes in shipping for the marine industry. We provide reliable and efficient logistics services along the most vital trade lanes across the globe, particularly those leading to countries recognised for their substantial contributions to shipbuilding.

What are international trade lanes?

International trade lanes are the routes taken by cargo ships to transport goods between countries. These routes, often referred to as shipping lanes, are typically the most efficient paths for ships to travel between ports, considering factors such as ocean currents, wind patterns, and maritime traffic regulations.

Trade lanes play a crucial role in global commerce, enabling the movement of goods between countries and continents. We serve trade lanes across the globe, focusing on countries leading in shipbuilding. These include, but are not limited to:

  • China
  • South Korea
  • Japan
  • Netherlands
  • Poland
  • Norway
  • Singapore, known for its expertise in shipbuilding and repairs and propulsion conversion (diesel to hybrid)

Proper packaging is crucial to ensure the safe delivery of marine supplies. Firstly, secure the item within sturdy containers – these could be corrugated cardboard or plastic boxes, depending on the type and size of the item. Ensure that you provide sufficient padding around the item inside the box to prevent it from moving during transit. You might consider using packing materials such as styrofoam peanuts, bubble wrap, or other suitable materials for added protection. This will provide cushioning during transit, ensuring your items arrive in optimal condition. View our packaging guide for more information.

Indeed, DHL Express is fully equipped to deliver to remote dock and port locations. We're cognisant of the urgency in the marine sector, particularly when specific parts are urgently needed for repairs or maintenance.
