TNT adds Hanover freighter

TNT is stepping up its services in Europe with the launch of B737-400 freighter services to Hanover in Germany, Europe’s largest express delivery market.
The express parcel operator now offers five flights a week connecting Hanover to the company’s main international air hub in Liege (Belgium), Hanover to Billund (Denmark) and Oslo (Norway) to Hanover.
TNT said: “Hanover is a convenient gateway to northern Germany, including the towns of Hamburg, Bremen and Magdeburg. The daily overnight flight from Liege to Hanover Langenhagen Airport enables delivery of urgent shipments to the region before 9am.
“After reloading, the flight continues to Denmark. The flight from Hanover to Liege, which originates from Oslo, departs Hanover every night, allowing for late collections in northern Germany and next-day delivery all over Europe. These services will particularly benefit automotive and industrial companies that rely on time-critical exports and imports.”
TNT has also broken ground on a 6,350 sq m depot in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, to replace the existing, rented facility in the same town, which has become too small. Completion is expected in June 2015.
Both developments are part of the company’s strategy to invest in its core European network.
