Time:matters, a provider of Special Speed Logistics, is now offering urgent transports of dangerous goods. Urgent transports of time-critical goods in hazard classes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9 can now be facilitated. With this new offering, the company is meeting the demands of industries that require both fast and reliable transport of dangerous goods. These include the automotive, aviation and aerospace and machinery and components industries as well as companies in the life and health sector.
Dangerous goods can now be transported worldwide on passenger and cargo aircrafts operated by Lufthansa, Lufthansa Cargo, Austrian Airlines and Brussels Airlines from a total of ten markets. In addition to Germany, these also include the US, India, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Thailand, Hungary, France and Portugal. Further markets are expected to follow.
In Frankfurt, Munich and Vienna, time:matters is in a position to facilitate what is known as tail-to-tail loading for especially time-critical dangerous goods shipments. This involves shipments being reloaded from an incoming jet to a departing aircraft directly on the apron without detouring through a warehouse or courier terminal. Loading on the apron at all four hubs is physically supervised, and active monitoring is ensured at every stage of the transport process. In Frankfurt, the company has import times of 90 minutes and export times of four-and-a-half hours. The shortest transit times of two-and-a-half hours in both Frankfurt and Munich also set new standards. Thanks to the fast transit times, the company can get dangerous goods from their starting point to their destination within 24 hours on many routes.
Time:matters specializes in particularly urgent transports and complex logistics. Urgently needed spare parts, medical samples and important documents are transported quickly and reliably from A to B via air, rail and road and if required also personally accompanied via On Board Courier. This is made possible by a global network with more than 500 courier partners and airlines. time:matters generally has access to all available airlines and can therefore utilize a wide range of flight routes: more than 3,000 connections a day to over 500 destinations in around 100 countries.
