DHL’s freight express shipments hit new highs after Trump administration delays
- by admin
The Trump administration delayed an order for fresh deliveries of cargo by United States-based DHL to boost American shipping to Europe and Asia amid the fallout from the North Korean nuclear crisis.
The move by the Trump administration on Friday came after weeks of uncertainty and uncertainty that have left some companies with huge inventories and slowed shipments.
In an email Friday, DHL Chief Executive Officer Michael van der Luyt said the order would be delayed until July 10, the same day as the opening of the Trump International Golf Links golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, which is expected to be the site of the next major test of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s missile capabilities.
It will be the company’s second delay in less than a week.
The first was after Trump ordered the United States to temporarily suspend imports of Canadian beef after the Canadian government imposed a moratorium on beef exports to North Korea.
The U.S. was already restricting shipments of raw materials and equipment to North Korean state-run firms and entities.
The move comes as the U.N. Security Council voted Friday to impose sanctions on North Korea for its nuclear test and ballistic missile launches last month and a third nuclear test last week.
The order by Trump came as President Donald Trump signed an executive order in March that requires the Department of Homeland Security to set up a joint program to deal with the impact of the North Korea crisis.
That program will also help coordinate the United Nations’ efforts to stem the flow of migrants and refugees into Europe, according to the order.
The United States and Canada have been working to boost their trade and business ties with the European Union as well as with North Korea, North Korea’s main trading partner.
