FedEx is now well down the road to taking over TNT Express. TNT’s principle business in the UK is TNT UK which turned over £724.9 million in the year to 31st December 2014 – 2.4 per cent down on the year before, according to its latest accounts. The company said the fall in turnover was due to a decline in revenue from international consignments following poor trading conditions in the Eurozone.

TNT UK produced an operating loss of £18.3m for the year – up from a loss of £9.5m in 2013.
