TNT announced that it has won a three-year contract renewal from the Swedish truck and bus maker AB Volvo for ‘inbound to production’ and aftermarket delivery services in Europe.
Under the contract, TNT will continue to handle AB Volvo’s European emergency production movements.

The service builds on TNT’s integrated road and air network in Europe, combining scheduled and special services to ensure all production delivery. TNT provides Volvo with a door-to-door transit monitoring service for shipments from its Automotive Control Centres, with 24/7 availability.
