time:matters adds new routes for spare parts logistics
Jul 21, 2017: time:matters, the special speed logistics specialist, has expanded its flight network in the area of spare parts logistics once again. Flights will now leave from Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden for Birmingham and Dublin on weekdays. The new routes extend the current network to the UK and Ireland, which have been served by flights from Frankfurt and Maastricht since 2011.
Thanks to the new routes from time:matters, customers from southern Germany can now also enjoy the benefits of a faster service for spare parts to the UK and Ireland. Urgently needed spare parts are already on site from 8 am the very next day, so technicians can get down to business straight away. time:matters has already managed to sell part of the additional cargo capacity across the English Channel to an UK logistics service provider and is receiving further inquiries. Three Saab 340 aircraft now take off from Baden-Airpark (FKB) every night for time:matters. The time:matters service began at this airport almost ten years ago with the first aircraft bound for Scandinavia. The route is now operated with two aircraft during peak season and the third Saab 340 is a new addition to the portfolio.
The Spare Parts Logistics service will help numerous companies offer a fast and competent aftersales service. time:matters also provides automated cargo tracking so that customers can receive regular and proactive updates on their shipments. The service is not only especially popular with numerous producers of agricultural equipment, but also customers in the medical technology, IT and automotive sectors.
“Almost ten years ago, this service was initially offered in all Scandinavian countries and to Italy. Now, time:matters also offers late pick-up combined with very early delivery for France, Spain, Greece, the whole of the Baltics and Moscow,” said Christian Mörtl, COO of time:matters GmbH, “and we are delighted to now be in a position to also offer this to customers from southern Germany for shipments to the UK.”
