KLM Cargo and TNT Express form European partnership

by Canadian Shipper

Effective October 29, 2001, TNT Express will become the sole supplier of European airborne feeder services for KLM Cargo.

The companies will share the use of TNT Express freighter capacity on several key routes: to Helsinki (four times weekly), Dublin (seven times weekly), Oporto (twice weekly) and Madrid (once weekly).

This co-operation enables TNT Express to extend collection cut off times and provide shorter door to door delivery times in many parts of Europe. KLM Cargo will no longer operate its leased freighter on European routes.

“We are pleased with the long-term and structural nature of this partnership, which will create breakthrough opportunities for KLM Cargo’s customers,” said Michael Wisbrun, EVP – KLM Cargo.

Future cooperation will lead to joint, integrated distribution services using the companies’ combined networks and capabilities, said KLM.
