TNT improves Nordics services

TNT is improving air connections to Sweden and Finland and adding last-mile delivery capacity in large business centres in the Nordic region.

It says it can now serve 15 per cent more post codes and 34 per cent more businesses in the region by noon the next business day, as well as offering more delivery options.

It has added or improved pre-12 coverage in cities such as Stockholm, Göteborg and Malmö in Sweden, Denmark’s Aarhus and Aalborg, Norway’s Oslo and Stavanger, as well as Helsinki in Finland.

This is the result of reintroduced flights from Liege to Stockholm Arlanda and Örebro airports. The route is operated five times weekly with a B737 and allows earlier arrival times for imports and later departures for exports, compared with TNT’s previous flight to Västerås Airport.

In Finland, TNT’s daily B737 freighter service from Liege to Turku will now make one stop in Helsinki enabling it to reach the city three hours earlier than before.
