Effective immediately, TNT is launching a scheduled road connection to Georgia and reducing European road transit times to Moscow.

TNT becomes the first express delivery service provider to offer an economy service to/from Georgia, in the Caucasus, as an alternative to air express services. The line haul will connect Georgia’s capital Tbilisi with TNT’s European Road Network (ERN) via Istanbul, Turkey. From Istanbul, TNT will connect the Caucasus freight on its ERN lines to more than 40 European countries. The service will offer customers competitive prices and transit times for parcels and palletized freight. It also gives customers the ability to ship larger (up to 30 m3) and heavier items (up to 1,000 kg per piece on a pallet).

Next to this, TNT is reducing European road transit times to/from Moscow by up to 48 hours (depending on origin) by changing the route for its trucks. Until now, TNT exclusively connected Russia via Turku (Finland), its northernmost hub within the European Road Network. From now on, TNT will also connect Russia via its Warsaw hub, thereby increasing the speed and capacity of its road service to the Russian capital. Road deliveries from Scandinavia will continue to transit through Turku.

Both improvements are part of TNT’s Outlook strategy to extend its European Road Network and move even more shipments by road.
