Time Critical goes to Europe

[ January 3, 2012   //   ]

Air Partner has extended its Time Critical door-to-door time-definite worldwide freight service to mainland Europe. In addition to the UK where it was unveiled six months ago, Time Critical can now be booked through Air Partner’s Cologne office where a specialist team can handle services in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Central and Eastern Europe, and Italy. The service uses aircraft charter, scheduled airfreight, dedicated express road transport and/or onboard couriers or an appropriate combination with Red-Track software providing real-time visibility of a shipment’s progress.
Director Richard Smith explained: “For more than a decade, Air Partner Freight has primarily focussed on providing bespoke ‘go now’ air charter services to move urgent and outsize cargo, often into some of the world’s remotest areas. However, as a result of an increasing number of requests for door-to-door solutions and our success in this area – for clients in the automotive, energy, pharmaceutical, aviation and Formula 1 industries – it made perfect sense to expand this area of our business into a specific specialist service. Time Critical is a natural offshoot of the Freight department with the added value of the Red-Track system.”
