TNT expands coverage of a bull market in Spain

TNT, now owned by FedEx, is expanding its international express delivery service in Spain, offering next day delivery to an additional 1,300 postal codes, covering more than 90% of Spain’s businesses.
This builds on recent improvements in TNT’s network operations in Spain, including additional pickup and delivery vehicles and rounds, additional direct linehaul routes, and the opening of a new international road transit hub in Madrid.
“TNT understands that our customers need added convenience coupled with superior customer service, and this network enhancement demonstrates our continued commitment to the Spanish market, which is one of Europe’s fastest growing economies,” said Christophe Boustouller, senior vice president operations, Southern Europe.
The International Monetary Fund expects Spain’s GDP to expand by 2.6% this year, faster than the euro zone average of 1.5%. Spanish customs data show a 3.7% increase in imports in 2015, stimulated by the domestic demand recovery. Spain imports high value goods such as industrial machinery, motor cars, medical and electronic equipment, as well as pharmaceuticals – all sectors that use express delivery services. 
The next day service expansion covers every province of the country, including Málaga, Albacete, Badajoz, Cáceres, Ciudad Real, Toledo, Burgos, Valladolid, Gerona, Granada, Huelva, Huesca, La Coruña, Almería, León, Salamanca, Lugo, Murcia, Orense, Córdoba, Asturias, Palencia, Tarragona, Cádiz and Cantabria.
