[photopress:timematters.jpg,full,alignright]Moving to become even more international the splendidly named time:matters has opened an office in Shanghai. It already has subsidiary offices in Austria, Switzerland and the Philippines.
The international time:matters network covers 400 destinations in 90 countries and boasts extremely short processing times for the transport of products between European economic centers
For example, automotive spare parts produced in the Slovakian capital of Bratislava reach their Spanish place of installation near Madrid in seven hours — including on-site delivery
The goal of the new sales office in Shanghai, is to utilize the Chinese market’s dynamic growth for the establishment of time:matters services in Asia. The high-tech and automotive segments are of special interest: both branches report a continual increase in demand for specialist logistics solutions.
Shipments can be transported from and to Shanghai — on flights from airlines such as Lufthansa, Swiss and Air China, which are used by the international time:matters network.
Thus, same day deliveries between Asia and Europe are possible if not inexpensive.
Franz-Joseph Miller, time:matters’ CEO, explaining his company’s internationalization strategy, said, ‘It is our credo, to be present on site, where our customers are and their problems arise, in order to offer the best possible solutions. Both the branch office in Austria and the office in Shanghai underline this strategy.’
In 2006 time:matters opened its first foreign branch office in Zurich as a first step in extensive internationalization of its business model; in 2007 branch offices in Vienna and Shanghai were opened.
Lufthansa Cargo AG, which spun off time:matters in 2002, owns 49% of the company shares.
