TNT Express speeds up ground delivery to Tangier

14 January 2010 – TNT Express is reducing road transit times for freight and parcels between Europe and Tangier, in the northern tip of Morocco. Transit times between Madrid and the city now run 2 days, cutting previous times in half or more. Many of TNT’s largest customers in the automotive, telecoms, electronics and textile industries operate factories or offices around the town. The regional economy is getting a boost from the Tangier-Med project –designed to be the largest maritime hub in Africa – and from the extension of the Tangier free zone (including a new Renault plant). TNT set up operations in Morocco in 2002 and opened an agency in Tangier early 2004. The company has provided its Economy Express ground service to Morocco since 2006, in addition to a daily air connection between Madrid and Casablanca. TNT also operates a daily road service to Rabat, Meknes, Fes, Marrakech and Tangier.
