The German Special Speed Logistics company, time:matters, which is based next to Frankfurt Airport, has announced another extension of their inner Europe spare parts logistics delivery
Founded in 2002 as a 100% Lufthansa Cargo daughter, time:matters has evolved into being Europe’s number one transport solution for the carriage of time critical shipments by air, rail and road. A new service has been introduced from the south German Baden-Baden (Airpark) Airport to Birmingham UK and Ireland’s capital city, Dublin. Flights operate on weekdays and complement the present daily operation which has been in effect since 2011 from Frankfurt and Maastricht airports.
Three Saab 340 freighters
time:matters guarantees shippers a delivery in the cities by 8 am the following day. This service is especially important for spare parts needed by automobile manufacturers in the Birmingham area. The new operation is carried out with Saab 340 freighters of which three are stationed at Baden-Airpark exclusively for time:matters shipments to Scandinavia, the UK and Ireland.
This is just one of the many destinations which has been offered by the German company from various German airports for many years. The service has in the meantime become very popular with producers of medical technology, automotive and IT parts as well as agricultural equipment which is urgently needed throughout Europe at short notice.
Eying the U.S. market
time:matters uses secondary airports for their services, thereby bypassing major hubs and giving their customers a guaranteed next morning delivery. Apart from the UK and Ireland, France, Italy, Scandinavia, Greece, the Baltic countries and Moscow are a firm part of their Special Speed Logistics network.
In other news, it was announced that time:matters is also making plans to enter into the U.S. market. Focus here, seems to be on the attractive semi-conductor and hi-tech industries within the United States.
So far, no exact routes have been announced.
