Shanghai, 8 September 2010 – TNT today announces plans to invest €170 million over the next few years to strengthen its leadership position in the Chinese domestic road delivery market. The investment will enable TNT Hoau, TNT’s road distribution arm in China, to enhance its day-definite road distribution network, introduce new services, and hire additional staff.
For the first half of 2010, sales of TNT Hoau’s day-definite service exceeded those of the entire year of 2009. Service coverage expanded early 2010 to 26 of the biggest cities in China.
The day-definite network now covers 800 depots throughout China, with a concentration on the major economic regions, including the Yangtze River Delta, the Pearl River Delta, and the Bohai Bay. The on-time delivery rate is 99%.
TNT Hoau’s day-definite ground delivery service provides a cost-efficient, yet fast and reliable alternative to domestic air freight, with door-to-door transport and online track and trace. The service has been used by small, medium, as well as Fortune 500 companies, especially in the high-tech, electronics, machinery, and textile sectors. To support the service, TNT Hoau has bought 400 EU III-compliant trucks and set up a dedicated customer hotline.
TNT Hoau also provides less-than-truckload (LTL) services nationwide. Overall, TNT Hoau manages a road distribution network of 1,500 depots and 57 domestic hubs, which serves more than 600 Chinese cities.
Besides domestic shipping within China, TNT offers international road and air delivery within Asia and between China and Europe. In July 2010, the company increased its service frequency to six flights per week to/from Shanghai and five flights per week to/from Hong Kong.
