TNT upgrades Nordic links

TNT is strengthening its international express delivery services to Europe’s Nordic countries with improved Boeing 737 freighter connections to Sweden and Finland, plus additional last-mile delivery capacity in large business centres. 
The Netherlands-based express and logistics carrier has reintroduced flights from its Liege air hub in Belgium to Stockholm Arlanda (ARN) and Örebro (ORB) airports. 
The route is operated five times weekly and allows earlier arrival times for imports and later departures for exports, compared with TNT’s previous flight to Västerås Airport. 
Also in Sweden, TNT selected new distribution partners earlier this year to speed up deliveries in and around Stockholm, Malmö and Örebro.
In Finland, TNT’s daily B737 freighter from Liege to Turku will now make one stop in Helsinki. This will allow TNT to reach the capital city three hours earlier than before and to offer more morning delivery options in the area. 
The flight continues on to Turku in the morning and returns to Liege in the nighttime. TNT has strengthened its pick-up and delivery capabilities (PUD) capabilities in Helsinki to accompany the change.
Ian Clough, managing director, TNT, International Europe, said: “We have expanded the number of locations for our international, next-day morning deliveries in the Nordics to help our customers who need speed and certainty. These latest improvements are part of TNT’s outlook strategy to strengthen our position in Europe."
TNT is currently awaiting European Commission approval for its $4.8bn takeover by US parcels giant Federal Express.
