FedEx Express and TNT have announced that TNT’s road service, TNT Economy Express, has been expanded to include one-day transit times for parcel shipments to selected destinations across Europe.
In a statement issued yesterday (27 June), FedEx said that this will mean an accelerated transit time on “more than 1,300 network connections, covering over 200,000 postal codes across 17 countries”.
Bert Nappier, president of FedEx Express Europe and CEO of TNT, commented: “In an increasingly competitive trading landscape, businesses are looking to their shipping providers to offer speed, coverage and reliability to help them stay ahead.
“The enhancement of TNT Economy Express gives that opportunity to both TNT and FedEx Express customers across Europe as the integration delivers the power of our unique combined service portfolio.”
TNT Economy Express allows customers to ship parcels of up to 70kg with delivery on a specific day. Customers can utilise TNT Economy Express service for import as well as export. It is part of a broader portfolio that includes solutions such as TNT Express, which offers time-definite delivery by a specific time.
Customers using the FedEx Express Intra-European Economy service will also benefit from these service improvements, enabled by the integration of the FedEx-TNT road networks.
TNT’s road network operates 55,000 weekly road trips, across more than 540 depots and 45 countries in Europe.
