TNT and Con-way Freight said May 12 they have added Miami and Los Angeles to their intercontinental air-road network for shipments weighing 150 pounds or more.
Until now, the service had been offered in the United States only through New York's JFK International Airport.
Under the service, TNT utilizes a Boeing 767 freighter to fly goods to and from its European hub in Liege, Belgium. Con-way manages the pickup and delivery of U.S. imports and exports, while TNT does the same in Europe. The flights operate five days a week, with an estimated three- to six-day delivery window door to door.
The alliance was launched in April 2009 as an import service into the United States. It was expanded in March to include U.S. exports.
The companies said in a statement that the latest expansion in Miami and Los Angeles would open up new international opportunities beyond the scope of the U.S.-Europe service.
