TNT increases its network across the Gulf
TNT has expanded its express import service by adding 20 countries to its list, including Iraq, Libya and Morocco.
TNT Express has added 20 countries — including Iraq, Libya, Morocco and Sri Lanka — to its ‘express import’ service, which allows customers to arrange collections from an overseas client and pay for the delivery in their own currency. It also allows customers to send shipments overseas and the recipients pay for the transaction in their local currency.
“With all the GCC countries already being well established in the express import network this expansion gives our region wide clientele access to a greater geographic spread whilst removing any difficulties arising from exchange rate conversions or fluctuations,” said Mark Pell, managing director, Gulf & Saudi Arabia, TNT.
“Customer service is at the heart of everything we do and the expansion of express import to some of the Gulf’s key trading partners shows our commitment to handling all our customer’s import requirements,” added Pell.
Other countries now joining the express import network include Brunei, Columbia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Madagascar and Morocco and TNT says another 25 countries will be added within six months.
“The express import network stands at well over 100 countries and it is TNT’s intention to continue the expansion until it reaches every country in the world,” explained Pell.
