TNT PARTNERS WITH ANYTHINGOVERNIGHT.COM
TNT has entered into a partnership with AnythingOvernight.com, so that the express carriers' customers can schedule international shipments through the Web site, which consolidates parcel and freight activity into a single platform.
Customers will be able to click on the TNT logo on www.anythingovernight.com and, after specifying package dimension, time constraints and destination, can view pre-negotiated rates, print shipping labels, schedule pick-up, track packages and notify the recipients, TNT said. Shippers can also generate real-time reports on historical TNT shipping activity and costs.
The Web site allows shippers to compare TNT's rates and services with competing parcel carriers. Businesses and e-tailers can access the site directly from their Internet or Intranet site by using AnythingOvernight.com's application programming interface.
“This alliance expands our worldwide online network and further enhances our e-commerce initiatives,” said Mark Gunton, president of TNT International Express, North America.
