You don’t need a magnifying glass to see: Manufacturers of precision optics rely on high-performance precision logistics like those of time:matters.
Carl Zeiss Vision GmbH, with more than 100 million spectacle lenses sold per year, is one of the world’s leading companies in the field of consumer optics. The article “Crystal Clear”, published in the current “Planet”, Lufthansa Cargo‘s customer magazine, impressively shows how time:matters ensures that lenses from overseas reach the Carl Zeiss facilities via Frankfurt in a timely manner.
In the Zeiss supply chain, time:matters is a decisive link between international production and adaptation of the lenses by the optician on site. Regardless of whether the precision lenses come from Mexico, India or China, the shipments reach their respective target markets at lightning speed – via the Frankfurt hub and with the reliability that you have come to expect from time:matters.
A dense network of Sameday Air stations and prioritized access to the freight capacities of Lufthansa Cargo and its subsidiary airlines accelerate deliveries to Zeiss facilities – on average, customers save an entire day’s delivery time. This is also achieved by fast handling of consignments during import, export and transit.
This is where the specialists at the time:matters Courier Terminal can play to their strengths: Thanks to apron access, personal monitoring of loading processes and the possibility of tail-to-tail loading, time:matters significantly accelerates the Carl Zeiss supply chain. And this despite the fact that the shipments are not consolidated, but enjoy individual handling.
Highest precision – even for very time-critical Sameday Air shipments.
