09JUL20 saw the official launch of time:matters Americas, Inc. adding a third continent to the company’s international representation. The certified expert for time-critical express transports, which has often demonstrated its flexibility in the face of the Covid-19 crisis, now has a subsidiary operating out of Miami, Florida.
“Proud to be part of this exciting journey. time:matters goes live in the US! Great teamwork of everyone involved, thanks for all the support. Looking forward to introducing our customers to what time:matters is capable of in the Americas - more exciting news to follow!” Mark Krug writes on LinkedIn. As Managing Director Americas, he heads the latest time:matters subsidiary, based in Miami, and transports the hands-on, optimistic attitude that characterizes the entire company.
Not the easiest time to open an office
Following a 04JUL20 with a difference, given that, due to COVID-19, Miami beaches were closed, community fireworks canceled, and large gatherings discouraged, it is not the easiest time to open an office. The US is experiencing rapid increases in COVID-19 cases, and Miami, the hardest hit in Florida state, has seen surging numbers of positive cases particularly in the past couple of weeks, averaging 1,800+ new cases a day. The City of Miami recently extended its State of Emergency for the sixteenth time since 10MAR20, and the wearing of masks is mandatory in all public places.
Forging ahead to offer the best time-critical solutions
time:matters’ CEO, Alexander Kohnen, is steadfast in his company’s strategy: “The foundation of a US corporate affiliate is another logical step and important milestone in our internationalization strategy, which we are still firmly committed to even given the challenge of COVID-19 and its effects on the aviation industry. Operating as an independent company, we can meet the ongoing requirements of our global customers. The new company will offer them the same high quality of service that they are used to from our other ISO-certified subsidiaries.”
