TNT and Con-way Freight have expanded their existing relationship to offer a new export service, featuring a day-definite, road/air/road U.S. to Europe solution for heavier freight shipments.
The move is an expansion of the intercontinental import service the two launched in April 2009.

As part of the U.S. to Europe service, less-than-truckload carrier Con-way Freight will manage the pickup of U.S. shipments, followed by consolidation and loading to direct air cargo service from New York's JFK International Airport to Europe. Upon arrival in Europe, TNT will manage customs clearance and deconsolidation at Liege Airport in Belgium. Shipments will then enter TNT's integrated air and road network for delivery to their final destinations in Europe. Transit times from JFK Airport to final destinations in Europe will range from three to six days.

TNT provides service through 414 depots across 39 European countries, while Con-way Freight runs a system of more than 300 service centers across North America. The expanded alliance with TNT will allow Con-way Freight to grow its suite of international services.
