Leading global logistics operator, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics UK, has announced that it has secured a guaranteed capacity agreement with Air New Zealand for service to Auckland, New Zealand. The contract will allow Hellmann Worldwide to further increase its logistics and freight forwarding services within the Australiasian region.
Allocating Hellmann with a primetime service on a Saturday, the capacity agreement means that customers, who have placed orders on Friday, can now benefit from a next working day delivery option
Consignments can be picked up and flown out of Heathrow on Saturday arriving in Auckland at 06.30am on Monday.
Having secured such an allocation, the agreement represents a considerable achievement for Hellmann.
It provides the company with the means to meet the burgeoning UK demand for express airfreight services to New Zealand
The contract has been signed until the 31st March 2012, and customers, looking to take advantage of this transit time can expect exceptional levels of service.
Matthew Marriot, Commercial Director at Hellmann UK, commented:
Establishing such a prestigious capacity agreement represents our commitment to continually look to expand the scope of our freight forwarding services, whilst offering customers exceptional levels of service. We noticed that there was a demand in the UK for this service and after working closely with Air New Zealand, we’ve managed to see the fruits of our labour.
This is of fantastic benefit to ourselves and to our customers and we’re absolutely delighted to be working in partnership with Air New Zealand. When you think about it, it’s quite something to be able to offer next working day delivery between two countries that sit on opposite sides of the globe.
