Avoid delivery delays and secure supply chain

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, supply chains are suffering. The supply of goods slows down, delivery bottlenecks and rising storage costs or production downtime are the result. Currently, there is hardly any area of life that is not affected by COVID-19/virus SARS-CoV-2.

The logistics sectors in particular must react flexibly and quickly to these challenges.

Numerous airlines no longer carry passengers due to the Coranavirus crisis. Capacity bottlenecks in airfreight are the result, as the cargo holds of passenger planes are no longer used as cargo space. Under these difficult conditions, time:matters nevertheless offers individual transport solutions to secure their supply chains.

Fast transport through individual air freight solutions

Whether it’s production equipment from China, spare parts to the USA or urgently needed medical devices and equipment to Europe: we bring your time-critical freight quickly and safely to its destination. Despite the severe restrictions in passenger traffic, the transport of goods is currently not restricted by governments. If you need freight capacities to areas affected by the coronavirus such as Spain, Italy or USA, please contact us!

We are constantly monitoring the current situation. Our logistics experts from Customer Service take care of the smooth transport of current shipments 24/7 and organize individual and flexible transport solutions for (un)planned shipments. Thanks to our logistics competence and experience, we can react flexibly to any unexpected developments.
