time:matters opens courier terminal at Shanghai Pudong Airport


time:matters GmbH is opening a Courier Terminal at Shanghai Pudong Airport for handling courier and express air freight shipments.

The launch coincides with the start of transport logistic China on June 25, 2024, and represents a further expansion of the company’s service capacity for handling courier and express air shipments in the Asia-Pacific region.

The time:matters Courier Terminal (tmCT) is being constructed in collaboration with the terminal operator PACTL (Shanghai Pudong Int’l Airport Cargo Terminal Co. Ltd.).

Constance Wu, Managing Director of time:matters (Shanghai) International Freight Forwarding Ltd. says: “When it comes to the transportation of time-critical, sensitive, and high-value goods, speed and security are essential. With the new terminal in Shanghai, we can significantly improve both for imports and exports,”

time:matters has had a subsidiary in Shanghai for five years.

The tmCT has been designed to optimize both the monitoring and the handling speed for time-critical and sensitive goods.

Bernhard zur Strassen, CEO of time:matters said: “Given the volatile global economy and the current geopolitical situation, the importance of resilient supply chains to maintain operational stability and protect companies from disruptions has increased tremendously.

“Our high-performance transportation solutions help companies around the world ensure this resilience on an ad hoc basis or as a regular backup solution.

“We focus on solutions that we can offer our customers individually and in the shortest possible time.

“At the same time, the development at Shanghai Pudong Airport is a consistent contribution to our company’s growth strategy.”
