TNT Express extends the geographical reach of its international ‘12:00 Express’ and ‘12:00 Economy Express’ delivery services to more than 900 additional locations across Europe. Thanks to the upgrade, TNT Express’ customers can now benefit from guaranteed morning delivery services to more cities and business districts in Austria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.

  • ‘Before 12:00’ coverage extended to 900 additional locations across 16 European countries
  • Extension benefits exporter and importer customers who require guaranteed morning deliveries for documents, packages and freight

TNT Express has completed the coverage expansion in just three months, as part of its strategy to strengthen its position in Europe, offer its customers more choice and increase revenues from premium delivery services.

‘12:00 Express’ guarantees delivery before 12:00 noon on the next or earliest possible business day to 26 countries in Europe and 63 worldwide for documents, packages and palletised freight. ’12:00 Economy Express’ is a unique time-guaranteed, door-to-door delivery service for less urgent packages and freight within Europe.

Building on TNT Express’ extensive air and road networks in Europe, the service expansion will benefit exporters and importers from all kinds of industries, from healthcare and automotive to industrial manufacturing and high-tech, to name a few.

“With this upgrade, our ‘before 12:00’ delivery capability increases by 20% in some countries. TNT Express is definitely the company to turn to for all morning deliveries in Europe,” said Jan Willem Breen, Global Director Marketing & Strategy, TNT Express.

In parallel, TNT Express has launched an international marketing campaign to highlight the reliability of its international services in Europe. Using the theme ’Connects Us’, it combines direct marketing and online communications.

International ’12:00 Express’ and ‘12:00 Economy Express’ services are also available to the three Benelux countries (nationwide coverage), Bulgaria, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, Ireland, Norway and Portugal.
