TNT Express has continued its drive to develop its emerging markets platform still further with the expansion of its US$13.4 million integrated air and road hub in Singapore, which is situated next to the cargo apron at Changi airport.
 
The facility can now handle up to 350 tonnes a day and enhances services between Europe, South-East Asia and China.

TNT’s air services are now directly linked to the operator’s 5000-mile Asia Road Network, which links 125 cities in five countries: Singapore, Malaysia. Thailand, Vietnam and China.

The move represents a continuation of TNT’s efforts in Asia, where the company has recently acquired India’s Speedage and China’s Hoau in a bid to drive growth in key emerging destinations.

“The launch of the regional hub in Singapore – a critical business hub for the region – is a key milestone in TNT’s global strategy to establish leading position in emerging platforms, including Asia,” said Peter Bakker, CEO of TNT.
