4 Time-critical logistics is a growing niche market with attractive business potentials and sustainable competitive advantages. Market Potential >2.500 mln EUR Market Growth >15 % Fragmented & emerging market. Industry trends as drivers of growth: Shorter cycles, lead & service times = demand for speed. Lean production & centralization of warehouses = exposure to shortage risks. Outsourcing of niche services / spare parts logistics & search for one-stop-sourcing. Differentiation through after-sales-services; integration of sameday into distribution. Emerging markets (Eastern EU, China, India).

5 Spare parts criteria Equipment/Facility criteria
Especially time-critical Spare-Parts Logistics drive the need for sophisticated air cargo solutions. Spare parts criteria Equipment/Facility criteria High costs incur due to downtimes Transportable International / decentralized production Storable Not too heavy (< 50 kg) “Vulnerability”—constant need for servicing Delivery Not too large Expensive/capital intensive to keep on stock in large numbers After-Sales-Service as competitive advantage Replacement parts and incidents erratic and unpredictable

6 The market for time-citical logistics is growing at more than 10% per year, thus at a higher rate than the air cargo market.

7 Time-critical special services
Who can do it? Time-critical logistics services require a high degree of flexibility & individuality as they often disturb standardized processes. Standard Air Cargo Time-critical special services Everyday business. 97% volume driven. Regular & predictable. Requires consolidation, standardized handling processes & networks. USPs: Network coverage Standardization Primary focus on cost structures. Exception business 3% of the orders … often require 30% of the capacities. (Often) unpredictable. Need for special solutions and ad-hoc processes; no consol. USPs: Verified experience Reliability / trust Primary focus on solutions (service)

10 Example: InteraDent Zahntechnik AG Lübeck, Germany to Manila and return
Part of InteraDent´s production of dental impressions is manufactured in Manila / Phillipines. Between pickup and delivery of the impressions is only a time range of 7 to 10 days – 4 days are needed for production. To reduce the cycle time, InteraDent trusts in time:matters. Hamburg – Manila in less than 15 hrs, 5 times a week. 07:00 pm: Shipment is delivered at Hamburg Airport 08:05 pm: Flight to Frankfurt with LH027 09:15 pm: Arrival in Frankfurt 10:45 pm: Flight to Manila with LH788 Next day: 08:05 pm: Arrival in Manila 09:05 pm: Shipment is available for the customer Transportation time: approx. 15 hrs.
