June 12, 2019: Lufthansa Cargo‘s wholly owned time:matters subsidiary plans to expand its network to the Europe-China, intra-Asia and trans-Pacific markets.

“We plan to develop our Asian network and to open around 10 stations in the region in the next few weeks. We’re also looking to develop an intra-Asia network soon,” Alexander Kohnen, CEO, time:matters said on the sidelines of the recently concluded Air Cargo Europe 2019 in Munich.

The first phase of expansion will allow time:matters to transport shipments between Europe and China. in the second phase, starting from the fourth quarter of 2019 or the first quarter of next year, the company will extend that to cover Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea, as well as intra-Asia shipments. In the third phase, time:matters will also launch a legal entity in the United States to enable trans-Pacific shipments.

Earlier in June, time:matters GmbH became certified according to ISO 9001:2015.

“Our customers expect 100 percent quality and professionalism from our transport services. They value the transparency that we offer along the entire transport chain through seamless monitoring and attach great importance to the reliability of our efficient, proactively defined backup processes,” Lars Krosch, COO of time:matters had said.
