TNT expands international express network in China
TNT said today it will add eight branches to its international express network in China by the end of the year, bringing its total in the country to 34.
The new branches will mainly be located in the Pearl River Delta and Yangtze River Delta areas. The first two already open are located in Foshan and Shunde. The next two at Dongguan and Zhongshan will be opened at the end of this month. The last four offices will be in Nanning, Wenzhou, Kunshan and Shanghai Pudong.
TNT, through its wholly owned subsidiary Tiandi-Hoau, also operates China's largest private domestic road network, which comprises 1,250 depots.
'The setup of the eight new branches is in line with our long-term ambitions in this market and those in the south region will further support the expansion of the TNT Asia Road Network into and out of China. We will continue to leverage on our strong European position to expand our international express market share and to strengthen our leadership position in the Sino-Europe international express sector,' said Michael Drake, managing director of TNT Greater China.
