Time-critical logistics firm time:matters is continuing its recent expansion with the addition of a US subsidiary.
The company has established time:matters Americas based out of Miami.
Target customers include US and international companies from the automotive, aviation and aerospace, high-tech and semicon, life and health, medtech, machinery and component, and logistics sectors.
“It will provide advice and make bookings, including issuing air waybills, and will handle everything through to local invoicing,” time:matters said.
“The customer service team, made up of English, German and Spanish speakers, will look after all steps along the transport chain.
“These may also include shipment pick-up, delivery and customs clearance at the customer’s request. The team will therefore be able to exercise maximum control over the entire transport process.”
Until now, time:matters had been covering the US market through the offices of its parent, Lufthansa.
Alexander Kohnen, chief executive of time:matters, said: “The foundation of a US corporate affiliate is another logical step and important milestone in our internationalization strategy, which we are still firmly committed to even given the challenge of Covid-19 and its effects on the aviation industry.
“Operating as an independent company, we can meet the ongoing requirements of our global customers. The new company will offer them the same high quality of service that they are used to from our other ISO-certified subsidiaries.”

“We will shortly be connecting further American stations to our unique Sameday Air network for our customers,” said Mark Krug, managing director Americas with time:matters.
“With the increased network density, we will be able to ensure the fastest possible transport connections.”
