Luggage Forward, a door-to-door luggage shipping service with many travel industry clients, reports it has partnered with DHL Express as its preferred international carrier. The move will eliminate the burden of traveling with luggage for global leisure travelers who can now forward their baggage, sports equipment or family items directly to their destination.
Through the partnership, Luggage Forward says it leverages the global shipping network of DHL Express to help travelers avoid one of the most frustrating parts of air travel and assure a faster, more relaxing alternative to long check-in lines and baggage carousel delays, Luggage Forward says.
Luggage Forward can send luggage directly to a traveler’s hotel, golf course, vacation home or even a cruise ship in Europe, Asia, South America, Australia or virtually any of the 220 countries and territories served by DHL Express, the company notes.
Travelers simply book online or by phone and Luggage Forward will automatically select a shipping carrier based upon reliability and speed. On average, DHL Express handles the transportation for more than 90 percent of the inbound U.S. luggage shipments booked by Luggage Forward customers as well as majority of shipments to and between international points.
Luggage Forward completes all required country-specific shipping and Customs documentation on behalf of their clients. DHL Express team members – all of whom are extensively trained on Customs regulations and international shipping complexities – are then able to expedite the luggage shipments through Customs and greatly reduce any potential delays or issues, Luggage Forward says.
In addition to being a Virtuoso Preferred Supplier, the company is the exclusive luggage delivery provider for many leading travel brands including Abercrombie & Kent, American Express Vacations, Exclusive Resorts, Holland America Line, Seabourn Cruise Line, and Starwood Hotels & Resorts.
