20 years of special speed logistics

We connect the world every day to save time, money and lives when it matters most to our customers.

20 years ago, the foundation of time:matters had been driven by the increasing demand for global transportation of time-critical goods.

20 years later, we still successfully rise to this challenge every day, 24/7.

What started 2 decades ago as a spin-off from Lufthansa Cargo has now matured into a global logistics provider with offices in Europe, the US and Asia. We keep growing thanks to loyal customers and a dedicated, passionate staff. We have been adding industry expertise to customer centricity and we are constantly expanding our network, further developing digital booking channels and investing in sustainability.

This year, we celebrate our 20th anniversary. And the celebration will last throughout the year. It will be packed with numerous activities, so make sure you stay tuned and come back to this page or visit our Social Media Channels. There will be raffles with great prizes, lots of interesting infos on current and future topics and videos from our management, from staff all over the world, from customers and stakeholders.

Do join us on a journey through the time:matters history and accompany us into the time:matters future!

Let’s celebrate together “20 years time:matters”.
