TNT, the global express and mail company, has opened a new International Gateway at Osaka Kansai International Airport in Japan. The facility is intended to strengthen the express service capability of TNT's Northeast Asian International Express Network, the company said, adding that it will shorten transit times by one day for deliveries from China to Osaka. TNT customers will receive one-stop comprehensive express delivery service between China and Osaka, one of Japan's key manufacturing hubs. Consignments leaving Shanghai and other Chinese coastal cities can now be delivered directly to Osaka Kansai. The time savings are especially critical for TNT customers in the electronics, apparel and textile industries, the company said. Vietnam, another of Asia's key manufacturing economies, will also benefit from the shortened transit times to Osaka Kansai, TNT said.
