TNT is owned by FedEx and is one of the biggest Express networks in Europe. They ship consignments of all sizes, from documents to pallets, specialising in cross-border speed and efficiency. The company is currently one of the only Express couriers to offer an Economy service for Import and Export to and from the Far East making them hugely popular for eCommerce imports from China. For this reason, the company has developed a speciality in support eCommerce operators across Europe.
Headquartered in the Netherlands and founded in 2011, TNT Express’ distinctive branding and affordable international rates have quickly made them a household name. Offering time-sensitive 9 am,10 am and 12 pm shipment options throughout Europe is a popular service for those wishing to secure prompt pick up and delivery times for customers. While specialists in freight and cross-border logistics as well as offering special services available on their own aircraft network for oversized shipments – TNT Express have dozens of depots around the UK – including on the Isle of Man and the highlands of Scotland making them the carrier of choice for those looking for a distributor with reliable infrastructure for local deliveries.
Many customers are attracted to TNT Express thanks to their modern courier management software which allows clients to track shipments online and easily import, export and return shipments either via the TNT website or mobile application.
Despite TNT Express being so easy to use, it can be both incredibly taxing and expensive to integrate it with your website and marketplace channels. Once you have established one shipping API with your systems, integrating another usually involves the work of a developer to manage. The lead time can be several months, and the bill can be in the thousands of pounds.
This is simply impractical for many eCommerce retailers, leading them to rely on offline-systems in order to use multiple carriers and affecting delivery lead-in times and the effectiveness of automated systems.
To get TNT Express link with your website hassle-free alongside many of the other mail delivery solutions providers such as FedEx, Royal Mail, Hermes, Yodel and many others can be achieved using Courier API.
Courier API was created for developers, by developers. Our software was initially designed to solve an in-house problem.
