Which specific services does time:matters offer?

Which specific services does time:matters offer?

As experts in High Performance and Special Speed Logistics, as well as in time-critical replacement parts logistics, time:matters offers bespoke, highly-flexible, worldwide logistics solutions designed to meet particularly urgent or highly complex – i.e. “impossible” – logistical challenges.

Depending on requirements, we multi-modally integrate different means of transport. Here our service spectrum ranges from direct routes and airport-to-airport deliveries to door-to-door deliveries and charter flights.

For small shipments weighing up to 20 kg that must reach their recipient on the same day, time:matters offers the exclusive ic:kurier service with Deutsche Bahn, which employs ICE, IC and EC trains.

In the case of urgent or sensitive shipments that require continuous, personal accompaniment, the customer receives an offer that can be booked online in less than a minute through the On Board Courier platform airmates. In addition to speed, range and reliability, time:matters offers maximum flexibility to meet special customer requirements in the automotive, high-tech & semiconductor, life & health, machinery & components, medtech, aviation & aerospace sectors, among others. In addition, time:matters has its own courier terminal at Frankfurt Airport with direct access to the apron. The company’s personal and physical monitoring of all its import, export and transit shipments guarantees the highest level of quality, transparency and speed.

What’s special about time:matters services?

Due to its Special Speed Solutions, time:matters occupies a special area of the CEP industry. Along with globally positioned partners including Lufthansa Group, KLM, Air France, Eurowings, American Airlines and Deutsche Bahn, time:matters has an international air, rail and road network directly at its disposal. Unlike other CEP service providers, time:matters does not operate a standardised transport system. This enables it to offer not only speed and range but far greater flexibility, in order to meet special customer requirements.

Hence, each transport solution is individually planned before being personally monitored and executed. In addition, time:matters has its own courier terminal at Frankfurt Airport, as well as apron access at Munich Airport.  Courier terminals serve as hubs for the handling of couriered and express deliveries. Due to the access they provide to airport aprons, they also facilitate shipment monitoring.  Status updates are done digitally and in real-time.
