TNT’s express trucking link to Istanbul
24 / 02 / 2015
TNT has launched a daily scheduled road service to Istanbul, linking the Turkish capital city to Sofia, Bulgaria, and on to all countries in Europe via the express company’s trucking network.
The Amsterdam-based parcels company says that it is currently the only express operator to run a scheduled road connection between all of Europe and Istanbul, “offering an economical and reliable alternative for less urgent shipments”.
Transit times from Istanbul to key European business centres vary from four to seven days, depending on distance to destination.
In Turkey, TNT operates a network comprising 26 hubs and depots, as well as a fleet of 328 vehicles, which connect Istanbul with other large cities, such as Ankara, Izmir, Adana and Bursa.
The new daily road service is an addition to TNT’s existing overnight air express service to Istanbul.
