First station outside Europe opened by time:matters


Time:matters has further extended its network for sameday transport of cargo by opening its first station outside of Europe in Tel Aviv, Israel.

The station is now open for time-critical shipments and export shipments with direct flights and there will be access to 90 direct connections a week to and from Tel Aviv.

Time:matters says the direct integration of a non-European location into the international Sameday Air station network is an “important milestone” towards the further internationalisation of the existing route network.

The company says numerous companies in a number of sectors, including high-tech/semicon, medical electronics, agricultural technology and telecommunications, are located in and around Tel Aviv.

Time:matters is a service for shipments weighing up to 38kg which can be switched between various airlines at any time. time:matters is thereby offering its customers the fastest handling times and more cost-efficient transports.

COO, Christian Mörtl says: “Our company has always striven to grow with our customers. The strong local presence of some of our customers in the region, especially in the high-tech/semicon sector, played a major role in our decision to open our first station outside of Europe.

“We want to offer our customers the most comprehensive network coverage possible and the best service at all times. By opening a Sameday Air station in Tel Aviv, we are taking an important step towards further internationalization of our route network.”

Time:matters is a service for urgently needed spare parts, medical samples and important documents via a global network with more than 500 courier partners and airlines.

The service has access to more than 3,000 connections a day to over 500 destinations in around 100 countries. Its own terminal for express and courier shipments is at Frankfurt.
