Wilson Logistics re-brands into TNT Freight Management

Publish Date : 30 June 2005 at 12:00 CET - Today, Wilson Logistics Group has taken an important step in integrating into TNT by changing its name to TNT Freight Management*. The Wilson Logistics Group was acquired by TNT in August 2004, adding a complete and globally standardised freight service offer and leading e-services to its express and logistics portfolio.

New opportunities

Customers are increasingly demanding complete end-to-end logistics solutions with total supply chain visibility. TNT Freight Management has the competence to supply and combine freight services, information management and added value into integrated solutions. As part of the Logistics division, TNT Freight Management supports TNT's capacity to offer customers one partner to solve their supply chain challenges worldwide.

The integration of Wilson into the TNT Logistics division is well on its way. The new brand is expected to bring benefits to the former Wilson organisation. “The name TNT, a strong and global brand, will give higher visibility and credibility worldwide. It will emphasise our joint service offer and help us in customer contacts”, says Jeff Hoogesteger, MD TNT Freight Management.

Business as usual

The new profile will be evident in a new TNT look for all communications from signs and business cards to invoices and web design. The change mainly refers to the brand, corporate identity and company name. In all other respects the company remains the same; the people, services, expertise and values as well as addresses.

TNT N.V., the holding company of the group, recently re-branded from TPG into TNT. Ultimately, TNT will operate globally under the TNT brand for all its activities.
