August 16, 2019: Global special speed logistics company time:matters has added three new stations to its highly efficient standardised network – Japan, Singapore and Thailand.

time:matters now has presence in 10 Asian business centres – Tokyo (NRT), Singapore (SIN), Bangkok (BKK), Shanghai (PVG), Shenyang (SHE), Beijing (PEK), Nanjing (NKG), Qingdao (TAO), Chengdu (CTU) and Guangzhou (CAN). Its customers have access to 84 weekly direct flights between the European hubs in Frankfurt, Munich and Vienna and the three new destinations.

“We are now connecting further important Asian marketplaces with large European and American business centres via our unparalleled Sameday Air network. This represents an important step towards our long-term goal of providing our customers with a highly efficient global Sameday Air network," said Lars Krosch, COO, time:matters.

time:matters will transport time-critical shipments between the new stations and existing Sameday Air locations in Europe, Israel, the US and Mexico. Urgently required goods shipments can be collected and cleared through customs on the same day and reach their required destination in the Sameday Air network within the shortest possible. This is made possible by the especially fast handling times starting at 90 minutes and transit times at the European hubs up from 45 minutes.

“The expansion into the Asian market is a key element of our internationalisation strategy and will help us to considerably extend our global quality promise and product range. This is a logical step for us following our expansion into China and a response to the specific needs and requirements of our international customer base,” added Alexander Kohnen, CEO of time:matters GmbH.

The new stations will benefit time:matters customers involved in the automotive, high-tech and semicon, medtech, and machinery and components sectors worldwide as it will allow them to avoid or mitigate potentially expensive supply chain disruption. time:matters is using Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines flights for standardised transports to and from Asia. Seamless connection with flights operated by the 21 Sameday Air partner airlines via the Frankfurt, Munich and Vienna hubs ensures unparalleled network coverage and density.

time:matters customers can book their own shipments via the online portal, track the progress of these and benefit from additional services such as customs clearance, pick-up and delivery upon request. Standardised pricing logic is used for consignments weighing up to 200 kg.
