TNT and Con-way Freight have announced a new export service as an expansion of their existing relationship. The intercontinental, accelerated service will feature a day-definite, road/air/road US to Europe solution for heavier freight shipments. The two companies launched the intercontinental import service as part of their commercial alliance back inApril 2009.

Con-way Freight will manage the pickup of US shipments, followed by consolidation and loading to direct air cargo service from New York’s JFK International Airport to Europe. Upon arrival in Europe, TNT will manage customs clearance and deconsolidation at Liege Airport in Belgium.

Shipments will then enter TNT’s integrated air and road network for delivery to their final destinations in Europe. Transit times from JFK Airport to final destinations in Europe will typically rangefrom three to six days, the duo said.
