TNT has announced that it is expanding its services in Europe with the construction of a new international depot in Eindhoven, Netherlands, and the start of air services to Hanover, Germany. Both developments are part of the company’s strategy to invest in its core European network, enhance operational efficiency and improve service quality.
TNT has broken ground on its new 6,350 sq m depot in Eindhoven to replace the existing, rented facility in the same town. Completion is expected in June 2015. TNT plans for the facility to have 99 loading docks for vans and trucks and to be equipped with sorting and loading equipment. The depot is designed to enhance TNT’s capability to handle increased volumes of parcels and freight across north western Europe. It will operate as a hub for direct deliveries to customers and daily road line-hauls to Liege, Belgium; Arnhem, Netherlands; Northampton, UK; Paris, France; and Zurich, Switzerland. The new depot will serve customers in the healthcare and high-tech industries in particular.
TNT is also expanding its service to Germany, offering five weekly flights connecting Hanover to the company’s main international air hub in Liege, Billund in Denmark and Oslo in Norway. All the flights are operated with a Boeing 737-400 freighter.
