TNT Express said Wednesday it would invest “tens of millions of euros” to increase productivity and efficiency at its hub in Liege, improving the facility’s sorting capacity by 50 percent, among other things.
Installation of new sorting systems in the 75,000-square-foot space will begin later this year; work is expected to be completed by 2016. Officials will also centralize cargo-screening systems in one facility.
"For customers, the investment will mean shorter handling times for export goods and urgent deliveries, as well as better handling of fragile items," according to a TNT press release. "The expected operational benefits for TNT Express include the elimination of bottlenecks, the possibility to accommodate an increase in volumes and a reduced cost per unit."
