5 things to celebrate about Delta Cargo’s DASH on its 50th anniversary

Here are five things to know about DASH:

Today, Delta Cargo celebrates the 50th anniversary of DASH, its service for same-day express shipping for small packages throughout the U.S. Since its launch, DASH has grown to be one of Delta Cargo’s most popular cargo products, fostering the launch of a range of innovative DASH products that deliver heavy equipment, life-saving organs for transplant and more.

“Delta was one of first airlines to offer a same-day express shipping option in the U.S.  and today it is one of our most popular products and perhaps the one for which we are best known,” said Andy Kirschner, Delta’s Director – Cargo Sales Americas. “Over 40% of domestic cargo that we transport annually is carried as DASH, and we carry everything from wedding dresses, films reels, trophies, movie props and human organs for transplant, to passports and other urgent documents.”
