TNT has expanded the coverage area of its international express delivery service in Spain, now offering next-day delivery to and from an additional 1,300 postal codes. Thanks to the expansion, TNT now covers more than 90% of Spain’s businesses.
This builds on recent improvements in TNT’s network operations in Spain, including additional pick-up and delivery vehicles, additional direct line-haul routes, and the opening of a new international road transit hub in Madrid.
Christophe Boustouller, senior vice president, operations Southern Europe, TNT, said, “TNT understands that our customers need added convenience coupled with superior customer service, and this network enhancement demonstrates our continued commitment to the Spanish market, which is one of Europe’s fastest-growing economies.”
The International Monetary Fund expects Spain’s GDP to expand by 2.6% in 2016, faster than the euro zone average of 1.5%. Spanish customs data showed a 3.7% increase in imports in 2015, stimulated by the domestic demand recovery. Spain imports high-value goods such as industrial machinery, automobiles, medical and electronic equipment, as well as pharmaceuticals.
The next-day service expansion covers every province of the country, including Málaga, Albacete, Badajoz, Cáceres, Ciudad Real, Toledo, Burgos, Valladolid, Gerona, Granada, Huelva, Huesca, La Coruña, Almería, León, Salamanca, Lugo, Murcia, Orense, Córdoba, Asturias, Palencia, Tarragona, Cádiz and Cantabria.
