time:matters connects 16 stations in US and Mexico to its Sameday Air network
March 13, 2018: With an aim to further augment its global network for same-day transports, time:matters has recently mooted plans to connect 16 logistics stations in the US and Mexico to its Sameday Air network, comprising over 100 stations, and more than 21 partner airlines based in Europe and Israel.
According to time:matters, out of its 16 logistics stations, 15 of them are situated in the US, and one in Mexico.
After recently setting up its first station in Tel Aviv, which is outside Europe, time:matters is planning to continue its internationalisation plans. With direct connections, time-critical shipments, which need to reach the recipient on the same day, can now reach the United States and Mexico from across Europe, and vice versa.
Seamless linking of connected airlines has led to a unique network density, which allows customers to access a variety of transport options.
Between the US, Mexico and Europe, time:matters offers over 500 direct flights every week, to and from Frankfurt, Paris, London, Munich, and Vienna. Further to the flights operated by Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines, additional American Airlines flights to and from Frankfurt, Paris, and London are also in operations.
Customers from automotive, electronics, semiconductors and aviation sectors are expected to benefit from the network expansion.
For example, urgently needed spare parts from Germany can be picked up, cleared by customs and reached to the desired station in the US or Mexico by air on the same day, thereby allowing them to be delivered directly to the production site.
For customers, the expansion means the shortest possible transport and handling time for shipments of up to 200 kg, combined with standardised pricing logic.
The Sameday Air transports can be booked online through the fully-automated booking portal of time:matters, and the shipment history can be tracked. Additionally, it offers 24/7 customer service specialists for consultation.
“We are responding to the demand of our customers by expanding our route network for same-day transports to the US,” said Alexander Kohnen, CEO of time:matters GmbH.
“Our long-term goal is to provide our customers with a worldwide Sameday Air network,” said Christian Mortl, COO of time:matters GmbH.
