time:matters Courier Terminal at Frankfurt Airport completes 10 years of operations
August 02, 2017: time:matters, experts in worldwide special speed logistics, have been running their own Courier Terminal in Frankfurt Airport’s CargoCity North to ensure worldwide express and courier shipments are sent quickly and securely. Its terminal is celebrating ten successful years in business on August 1, 2017.
The Courier Terminal ensures that time-critical shipments that must quickly be transported from airport A to airport B are delivered, picked up or transferred extremely quickly and securely by plane. Shipments may include important spare parts, medical samples or highly sensitive documents.
Direct access allows for the shortest import and export handling times of just an hour each. Direct transfer from plane to plane on the apron ensures the shortest transit times. To guarantee the shipment is always under control, it is physically guarded by security personnel on the apron. Irregularities can also be communicated in real time, and corrective action can then be taken. With its own Courier Terminal, time:matters is also able to respond even more explicitly to individual customer needs and provide specially tailored solutions.
time:matters took over the Courier Terminal from Fraport Cargo Service in August 2007 with some 15 employees. The company has since been handling shipments with 40 employees from its own staff – not only for its own customers, stemming from a wide range of different industries including life & health, the automotive industry and aviation, but also for other logistics service providers and their clients as well as a number of airlines.
Around 3,500 shipments with a cargo volume of 1,100 metric tonnes are sent every month via the time:matters Courier Terminal. Since 2013, time:matters has posted a double-digit rate of increase in terms of tonnage as well as the number of shipments.
“Because the satisfaction of our customers is our highest priority, it’s important for us to provide them with a service that makes sending their shipments much quicker, more secure and more flexible,” said Christian Mörtl, COO of time:matters.
