LATAM Star Offers New Direct Cargo Service to Brazil from HSV

A DSV employee shuttles a load of cargo destined for Brazil on the new LATAM Star route from Huntsville International Airport. The weekly, direct international air cargo service is a collaboration between LATAM Group and DSV, based at HSV.

The Port of Huntsville announced greater opportunity for businesses as the new LATAM Star route began air cargo service direct from HSV to Brazil in June 2022. LATAM Group (“LATAM”) offers the service in collaboration with freight forwarder DSV at Huntsville International Airport.

“We are thrilled to add this direct service to South America from Huntsville,” said Barbie Peek, Business Development Officer, Port of Huntsville. “With a supply chain pushed to the limit by the pandemic, cargo operations have struggled to keep up. The new LATAM Star service will provide a welcome remedy to businesses wishing to get their product to the Brazil market quickly and efficiently.”

Weekly Monday morning departures from Huntsville are scheduled to arrive the same day in Brazil.

Tagged as the LATAM Star, LATAM Group (“LATAM”) together with DSV will offer service from Huntsville, Alabama with direct service to Viracopos, Brazil. This route provides relief needed for a congested supply chain in offering a direct cargo load by DSV Air&Sea at the Huntsville International Airport.

Voted as No. 1 on U.S. News & World Report’s annual Best Places to Live list for 2022-2023, Huntsville Ala. is an optimal origin and destination point for clients as a less congested option to more traditional cargo facilities in the nearby area.

“The relaunch of the route from Huntsville is proof of the opportunities created by the growth of our B767F fleet,” said Andrés Bianchi, LATAM Cargo CEO. “This allows us to provide differentiated solutions to our clients, regarding origins, destinations, and frequencies, and strengthen our connectivity to, from, and within South America.”

This unique collaboration is a quick turnkey solution, loaded and controlled by DSV Air & Sea with the full commitment and lift by LATAM. Routed in return from Viracopos, through Bogota and Miami – this full-service offer is a game changer for many looking for relief in this market.

“DSV has grown its Air Freight competencies and volumes over the last years, and with that we will continue to build on our strong and growing charter network,” said Mads Ravn, Executive Vice President, DSV Air&Sea. “The new Huntsville – Brazil – Bogota service is another add-on which expands the DSV Charter Network to the resurging Latin America region from the uncongested Huntsville International Airport.”
