Alexander Kohnen, chief executive of time:matters

Express logistics provider time:matters has opened a new hub in Brussels and expanded its coverage in Africa, offering 81 direct flights between the Belgian city and 16 African destinations every week with immediate effect.

The company is using Brussels Airlines’ network to offer transportation of time-critical shipments to Abidjan, Accra, Banjul, Bujumbura, Conakry, Cotonou, Douala, Dakar, Entebbe, Freetown, Kigali, Luanda, Lomé and Yaoundé, as well as Ouagadougou and Monrovia.

Goods likely to be moved on the services include spares and machine parts for the local oil, shipbuilding, mining and food industries.

“We are considerably extending our standardised offering of Special Speed transport solutions in the African market by including 14 new stations,” said Alexander Kohnen, chief executive of time:matters.

“Thanks to the new hub in Brussels, we are in a position to offer our customers access to our highly efficient network with the usual level of reliability and speed.”

time:matters, which is owned by Lufthansa, also recently established seven new stations in China as part of its ongoing expansion strategy.
