A large pharmaceutical and chemical group from Frankfurt has set up a production site for medication in Manchester to be able to supply the English and Irish markets promptly. However, a large special centrifuge, a brand new development of the pharmaceutical giant, breaks down during the test run; the required spare parts are currently only available in Frankfurt. In order to be able to meet the production start date the next day, time:matters is commissioned to bring the rare spare parts from Frankfurt to Manchester immediately.
A courier picks up the delivery and brings it with great haste to the Frankfurt (FRA) freight terminal. Here, time:matters has a starting advantage: access to the apron, its own courier terminal, direct access to the Lufthansa network. In no time at all, the spare parts delivery is loaded onto the next flight to Manchester, just before the plane takes off. A courier is also available in Manchester to receive the shipment and deliver it directly to the factory. The technicians and engineers who developed this machine immediately get to work and install the spare parts. The next test run works perfectly, to the relief of all concerned. The production start date can be met as planned.
