06 / 07 / 2010
DUTCH logistics group TNT is raising airfreight capacity to China thanks to strong demand. According to the Chinese General Administration of Customs, Chinese exports to Europe have increased by 50 per cent in the first five months of the year since 2009.
The company will double its services to six flights per week from Shanghai and five per week from Hong Kong, using an additional 747-400 ERF, to its European air hub in Liege (Belgium).
“TNT has seen a significant increase in customer demand for freight services between the regions. Our current freighters between China and Europe are operating at full capacity,” said Iman Stratenus, managing director of TNT China.
