TNT introduces new shipping service to and from Laos

12 April 2011 - TNT Express is making its internationally popular Economy Express service available to and from Laos. Economy Express provides businesses with a day-definite, customs-cleared, door-to-door delivery service for shipments weighing up to 500 kg (non palletized). Delivery is guaranteed within 2-5 working days, depending on the origin and destination. The Lao economy is projected to grow by 7.5 percent in 2011 (source: IMF, October 2010). This expansion is driven by infrastructure investments, mining, hydro power exports to Thailand and garment production. Thailand, China and Vietnam are the country’s main trading partners. Typical shipments to Laos include machinery, mobile phones and telecom equipment like fibre optic cables, used to develop the country’s infrastructure. TNT has been active in Laos since 2004.
