Rolls-Royce and DHL Express have announced they have both signed a TotalCare® agreement for the Trent 700 engines that currently power the eight Airbus A330 freighter aircraft of the worldwide operating logistics company. The agreement will also cover any Trent 700 engines that are added to the DHL fleet in the future. Our TotalCare service not only provides world-class support to our airline customers but also to our cargo carriers. TotalCare offers more than just an engine maintenance plan; it is a service concept based upon predictability and reliability. 

This agreement will give DHL a secured cost of operating and maintaining their Trent 700 engines through a dollar-per-flying-hour payment mechanism. It will also deliver enhanced aircraft availability thanks to our in-depth engine knowledge that draws on our advanced engine health monitoring and on the 62 million flying hours the Trent 700 has accumulated over more than 25 years of operations. 

The TotalCare agreement will ensure the continuity of aftermarket support at the lowest possible maintenance cost for the DHL fleet for decades into the future.

The Trent 700 delivers the highest thrust on both of DHL’s freighter aircraft types – the A330-200F and A330 P2F – which translates into extra payload compared to other engine choices. As well as emitting less CO2 and being the most economical engine to operate on the A330, the Trent 700 is also the most reliable option, with 99.9% dispatch reliability. 

Hannah March, Rolls-Royce, Vice President Customers, said: “We are delighted to be able to continue to support DHL following a successful collaboration on the RB211-535E4. This agreement is another great example of providing world-class services to DHL, enabled by the best engine for the A330 freighter, the Trent 700.” 

Geoff Kehr, DHL, Senior Vice President – Global Fleet Management, said: “TotalCare gives us the opportunity to maintain our Trent 700 fleet to best-in-class reliability standards by leveraging the scale and reputed Rolls-Royce capability through TotalCare support. This frees time and resource so DHL may focus on other fleet maintenance optimisation and operational aspects.”
