17 March 2010 – TNT Express has expanded its international “Economy Express” freight service in Russia with a new road connection to Yekaterinburg, the largest city in the Urals with 1.3 million inhabitants. The service extension is geared towards importers and exporters looking for a cost-efficient, day-definite delivery service for shipments weighing up to 500 kg per piece (palletised). Typical transit times will be 5 business days from Amsterdam or Hamburg, 6 business days from London or Rome.
