Danzas was founded in 1815 and was originally based in Basel, Switzerland.

Louis Danzas fought at Waterloo for Napoleon. After that battle, he joined a transport company owned by Michel l'Eveque and by 1840 became joint owner. The company, Danzas and l'Eveque, obtained a mail delivery franchise from Le Havre to New York City in 1846. A Basel branch was opened in 1854.

The company began to use air transport in 1920 between France and England, and opened its own freight terminal in Paris in 1962.

In 2000, Deutsche Post World Net acquired Danzas. When the parent company acquired DHL International in 2002, it fully integrated Danzas, DHL and EuroExpress under the DHL brand, thus renaming Danzas to DHL Danzas Air & Ocean.

In 2005, Deutsche Post dropped the Danzas brand and renamed the business unit to DHL Global Forwarding/DHL Freight.

In 2006, it also combined parts of Danzas and other ground-based freight subsidiaries in its new DHL Freight division.


DHL won 7 awards in 2013 at the Reader’s Digest Most Trusted Brand awards, and won the Gold Award in the ‘Best Airfreight/ Courier Service’ category in Asia for the fifth year in a row.
