TNT launches Tel Aviv freighter links

TNT has launched a Monday to Friday B737-400F service between Israeli capital Tel Aviv and the express operator’s European hub in Liege, Belgium.
The new service "answers increasing demand" and allows TNT to shorten transit times for express shipments to and from Tel Aviv by one day.
The flight arrives in Tel Aviv in the morning for same day deliveries, and departs in the evening, allowing for close of business pick up and same day export
Martin Sodergard, managing director network operations at TNT, said: "With this flight operated by TNT, our customers will benefit from improved delivery reliability, as well as later cut-off times for pick-ups thanks to improved departure times.
"It also gives us additional capacity to further grow our business in and out of Israel.”
The European Union is the first trading partner for Israel, with total trade amounting to approximately €29bn in 2013. 
Typical TNT shipments to and from Israel include machinery, electronic products, medical equipment and textiles
Under the company’s outlook strategy, TNT is working to combine its European road network with a stronger international air network.
TNT has recently upgraded its road express services to Turkey and the Balkan countries, and added Hannover and Venice to the European air network.
