Neu-Isenburg / Manila, May 18th, 2009: time:matters, the logistical problem solver for time-critical (emergency) situations that require customized and reliable special solutions and Cebu Pacific Cargo, based in the Philippines, have announced their cooperation. Thanks to this new partnership, time:matters has access to Cebu Pacific flights departing from Manila Airport for its Special Speed Solutions and time-critical shipments on an international scale.

With Manila Airport and the Cebu Pacific Air network at its service for the transport of time-critical shipments, time:matters now has even more possibilities to provide the fastest service to customers and reduce transport times – especially to and from the Philippines. “This expansion of the network is a clear advantage for customers, as they will benefit from the resulting shortest delivery times to and from the economically important region of Manila”, emphasizes Mr. Sanjeev Wadhawan, Vice President Operations & Customer Service of time:matters Asia Pacific.

An urgent shipment for a leading high-tech manufacturer that has production facilities in the Philippines, for example, can be dropped off in Manila at 6 pm and is already available for pick-up in Mexico at 7 pm the next day, due to the seamless transport involving Cebu Pacific and Lufthansa flights. Dedicated teams stringently monitor and oversee each and every stage of the entire transport chain – in real time.

“The time:matters worldwide network is one of the largest in terms of size and offers optimal schedules for time-critical and emergency shipments. The added value that the partnership with Cebu Pacific Cargo generates for the customer is the increased number of connections to and from Manila to international economic centers”, explains Mrs. Gabriela Ahrens, Regional Director Southeast Asia & Australia, of Lufthansa Cargo. “The cooperation with Cebu Pacific Cargo enables a substantial time savings for time-critical shipments, which makes our range of services even more attractive”, she adds. Mr. Joseph G. Macagga, Vice-President Cargo & Fuel from Cebu Pacific Cargo, states: “We are very happy about the cooperation with time:matters and Lufthansa Cargo as partners for time-critical services. We plan to expand our partnership and incorporate further Asian economic centers into the time:matters network.”
