TNT delivers equipment in record time
Dubai, July 5, 2007
TNT Express has delivered 10 tonnes of Sony broadcasting equipment to Showtime Arabia, the leading Pay TV network in the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) region.
The world's leading B2B express delivery company achieved this in a record time of less than seven hours.
The delivery to Showtime's regional headquarters in Dubai Media City was managed through TNT's Special Services department, which offers tailor-made flexible solutions to unusual customer needs, with no size or weight restrictions, anywhere in the world.
'This is the second time Sony Professional Solutions has called TNT Special Services to undertake the difficult task of delivering equipment, which includes servers, furniture, cabling and other media apparatus, to the studio,' said product manager, Special Services, Dirosh Amarasinghe.
'The large, heavy and expensive equipment was delivered using a specially contracted telescopic forklift, through a window on the first floor, as no other entrance could accommodate the dimensions of the consignment,' he added.
With four departments - Time Critical, Freight, Special Handling, Storapart and Distribution, TNT Special Services is becoming a tool increasingly utilised by its clients, delivering any consignment, anywhere, anytime, whether it be Christmas, Eid or New Year.
TNT is the only company that has a dedicated special services team at every office in its entire global network.Trade Arabia News Service
