TNT to offer service to Somalia
TNT Express is introducing twice weekly express and air freight service to Somalia from its hub in Dubai. The service will include an air connection from the capital of Mogadishu to the northern city of Hargeisa.
TNT said it signed an agreement with Somal Post, the Somali national postal carrier, to use the postal network to complete parcel deliveries in cities and towns outside Mogadishu and Hargeisa.
The new service is only for Somali imports, with export service to be launched in the coming months, TNT said.
International trade is expected to help Somalia as it recovers from civil war.
