Time-critical logistics firm time:matters has expanded its same-day network to the US.
The Lufthansa-group company said that it is now offering a total of 89 stations for the domestic transport of time-critical shipments to major economic centers in the US.
The company is able to offer the service on 45,000 flights per week through its partnerships with American Airlines, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines.
“Through highly efficient processes as well as short handling and transit times of 45 minutes and upwards, urgent goods shipments weighing up to 200 lbs (90 kg) reach their destination within a matter of hours and are therefore ready for pick-up or onward carriage shortly thereafter,” the company said.
Chief operating officer Lars Krosch said: “By adding 89 stations to our unique Sameday Air network, we have now connected all major economic centers across mainland US.
“The high number of frequencies and the cooperation with leading US carriers enables us to transport shipments in the fastest possible way while maintaining our usual standards of flexibility and reliability.”
Krosch added that its expansion in the US market was an “important element in the company’s internationalisation strategy”.
Earlier this month, the logistics firm launched its US subsidiary with an office in Miami.
