OREANDA-NEWS. TNT Express has expanded its intercontinental Express Freight service in 10 additional countries beyond Europe, bringing global coverage to 80 countries worldwide. The expansion includes key business locations, particularly in North America. Customers shipping to the Middle East and South America will also benefit.

The Express Freight service offers same-day collection, door-to-door distribution and 1-3 day transit times for palletised freight shipments weighing up to 500 kg. It provides all the features of the company’s express services, including day- and time-definite delivery, customs clearance, full track and trace, and proactive customer updates.

Intercontinental expansion of TNT Express’ freight capabilities follows the company’s strategy of strengthening its service offering between international markets and Europe, where the company already provides industry-leading express freight services across 37 countries.

The expansion will benefit importers and exporters in all industry verticals. In particular, the expansion to the Middle East will be attractive to customers whose urgent freight needs are not met by most freight forwarders. In North America, where TNT Express has been active for years, the extended coverage includes additional business locations around New York, Washington DC, Atlanta, Hartford, Chicago, Philadelphia, Portland, Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa.

“Offering Express Freight to more destinations internationally gives customers additional options: more delivery locations, faster shipping for freight and all the benefits of Express,” says Jan Willem Breen, Global Director Marketing & Strategy, TNT Express.
