TNT Express launches dedicated freighter service between India and Europe

Publish Date : 08 June 2011 08:30 at CET -

TNT Express has launched a dedicated B767 freighter service between India and Europe, the country’s largest trade partner. The service will run five times a week between New Delhi and TNT’s European air hub in Belgium, with a stopover in Dubai on the way back to India. The new service will enable TNT Express customers to enjoy faster transit times, as well as improved control and visibility over shipments moving between India and Europe.

The new B767 freighter service has a weekly capacity of 210 tons and reflects TNT’s commitment to improving connectivity between India and Europe.

Shipments depart from New Delhi at the end of each work day and arrive in Europe before the start of the next working day. The return flight allows TNT to collect and uplift shipments from Europe on the same day.

The introduction of the India-Europe service is part of TNT’s plan to expand its leadership position on Asia-Europe routes. TNT now operates flights to Europe from five strategic locations in Asia: New Delhi, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore.

Abhik Mitra, Managing Director of TNT India said, "TNT India has been recording year-on-year growth of more than 20 per cent in India. The addition of a dedicated TNT freighter from India will enable our customers to become even more competitive due to faster factory-to-market lead times and improved efficiency. With the frequency of our service, it will now take just one day for shipments to reach Europe from New Delhi."
