China - TNT Express has launched a new direct scheduled B747 service between Chongqing and Europe in response to growing demand from the region's high-tech industry.
Manufacturing and trade in Chongqing have grown to US$4.2 billion in the first eight months of 2010. The high-tech sector will create huge market opportunities for the logistics company, a press release said.
"Chongqing has developed as an important high-tech manufacturing centre in Western China. We are pleased to contribute to the high-tech industry's development in the region by providing pioneering international delivery services between Chongqing and Europe," Michael Drake, regional managing director of TNT North Asia said.
He felt this new service will help TNT meet both growing export and domestic demand across the country, including Western China.
