TNT's introduction of a scheduled Air Cargo Service in Europe allows airlines, freight forwarders and express operators to take advantage of its extensive European express delivery network to deliver large consignments at very competitive rate.
It compliments TNT's existing Air Charter Service, providing customers with a one-stop-shop solution to all their cargo requirements.
TNT's objective is to create a cargo partnership with its customers and meet market demand for value-added services.
Air Cargo Service is a first in the industry as it offers customers unparalleled levels of reliability.
It is designed to be a simple and efficient airport-to-airport service with the added benefit that customers have the flexible option of buying belly space as well as a fixed container position. TNT believes that the service will allow airlines that only operate into one or two European airports from outside Europe to extend their service to existing customers, as well as attract new business as a result of an extended network. The service also provides shippers with the opportunity to offer next day deliveries to their customers and thus compete with integrators.
Not only is Air Cargo Service a value added service but it is also a value for money service. Charges are based on the type of cargo carried - an entire ULD or loose loaded cargo as well as on a route basis to and from Liege.
