Antarctica global trade story
From Iceland to ice land in 36 hours
Thanks to DHL’s global express shipping, an urgently needed emergency replacement satellite phone was sent halfway around the world to Antarctica – within 36 hours. That’s the power of global trade. And DHL is making it happen.
Iceland-based company Arctic Trucks supplies vehicles for high-profile expeditions in the Arctic and Antarctic. Every summer, an Arctic Truck expedition makes the perilous journey to build an ice-runway on the Antarctic Plateau. It is at this key location that scientists rest and refuel before flying on to their facility where they conduct vital research about global climate change. If something goes wrong under these extreme environmental conditions, it can have serious consequences.
