TNT sets up new gateway at Osaka

TNT announced the opening of its new International Gateway at Japan's Osaka Kansai International Airport. The TNT International Gateway in Osaka Kansai will not only strengthen the express service capability of TNT's Northeast Asian International Express Network, it will also shorten the transit time for deliveries into Osaka, from China by one day.

TNT customers will now be able to enjoy the one-stop comprehensive express delivery service between China and Osaka, one of Japan's key manufacturing hubs, in the shortest possible time. Consignments, leaving Shanghai and other Chinese coastal cities, can now be delivered directly to Osaka Kansai. This time saving is crucial for TNT customers mainly in the electronics and apparel/ textile industries, where time critical deliveries remain one of its most important competitive advantages.

"I am really excited about the opening of the TNT International Gateway in Kansai as it will boost our service capabilities to our customers especially those in the electronics and apparel/ textile industries," said Marie-Christine Lombard, Group Managing Director of TNT's Express division "TNT's expansion in the region continues to be driven by the needs of our customers, which often work under severe time-to-market conditions. By shortening transit times to Kansai by one day, TNT will be best placed to support them in minimizing their time-to-market process. This is definitely a new growth sector for both TNT in China and Japan."

TNT's operations in Kansai International Airport will place TNT in a good position to facilitate the growing trade and business flows between China and Japan and will provide businesses in these regions with comprehensive, reliable and time-definite delivery services. Since 2007, China has been Japan's biggest trading partner while Japan continues to be one of the top trading partner of China. Based on figures released by the Japanese Finance Ministry in 2007, the two-way trade between China and Japan has shot up 10% to US$214 billion.

At the same time, Vietnam which has been poised as one of Asia's key manufacturing economies and is one of the fastest growing exporting countries to Japan in Asia, will also benefit from the shortened transit times to Osaka Kansai.
