Global express company TNT, has announced it is launching its first domestic day-definite road distribution service in China. The service will be delivered through TNT-Hoau, TNT’s whollyownedsubsidiary in China.

Leveraging on TNT-Hoau’s extensive domestic road distribution position in China and TNT’s strong international road distribution expertise, TNT said the premium road service will also move the company into a new value-added arena, in terms of time, security and service quality.

The TNT-Hoau day-definite road distribution service will utilise TNTHoau’s existing extensive road distribution network to deliver on-time, door-to-door or depot-to-depot services. It will complement TNT-Hoau’s trusted less-than-truckload (LTL) road service to boost TNT’s full-service offerings capability in China.

The day-definite service will first be offered between 115 depot pairs covering the key economic areas of the Yangtze River Delta, Bohai Economic Rim and the Pearl River Delta regions.

TNT-Hoau plans to increase the coverage of this premium service to over 260 depot pairs by July 2009.

TNT-Hoau already manages the industry’s most extensive road distribution network consisting of 1,260 depots served by 56 domestic hubs covering more than500 Chinese cities
