TNT Express has launched a dedicated B767 freighter service between India and Europe, the country’s largest trade partner. The service will run five times a week between New Delhi and TNT’s European air hub in Belgium, with a stopover in Dubai on the way back to India, providing a weekly capacity of 210 tonnes. The new service will enable TNT Express customers to enjoy faster transit times, as well as improved control and visibility over shipments moving between India and Europe. TNT said the introduction of the India-Europe service is part of its plan to expand its leadership position on Asia- Europe routes. TNT now operates flights to Europe from five strategic locations in Asia: New Delhi, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore. Abhik Mitra, managing director of TNT India said: “TNT India has been recording year-on-year growth of more than 20 per cent in India. The addition of a dedicated TNT freighter from India will enable our customers to become even more competitive due to faster factory-tomarket lead times and improved efficiency. With the frequency of our service, it will now take just one day for shipments to reach Europe from New Delhi.”
