7 TNT’s values TNT’s 7 values
Were easy to instill in France since they are universal - To satisfy the customer - Continuous improvement - to pay attention to the other - Act as a team - To be honest - to keep succeeding through time - To make the company a world wide citizen These values are present in all TNT warehouses in the world. Since they are generic, they were easy to instill in France. Even in the context of Jet Service’s acquisition there was no hard time implementing them.

8 Constraints in France A different legislation in each country
French employement laws : A constraint for developping the activity A reduction of the competitivity -TNT had to face constraints that are the same in each country : a different legisaltion -But there are constraints that are only in France : the length of work in a week is very short in France, and the employement laws are very strict.

9 Adaptation to France A long integration of Jet Service in TNT
The Jet Service team had to adapt : TNT France had to propose all the range of TNT product Working internationally needs new know-how's TNT France is a combination of know-how's -TNT bought Jet Service in 1999, but it began to associate the 2 names only in 2001, and Jet Service disappeared in 2003 -TNT have a global policy : to offer the same services all over the world : French managers had to adapt to this policy. But it was not only Jet service who had to adapt, but also TNT, to create common know-hows that fit both the French market and TNT requests.

12 Essential Advice To work in delivery services, you have to think in term of network You need to buy a French company to implant yourself in France… … But the market is already quite saturated -Entry barriers are very high in this kind of job, and if you start from zero in a country, You will have a long period without profit -There are 4 big operators in the world : DHL, UPS Fedex and TNT. Those big 4 are already settled in France, so it would be difficult for a new company to settle in France in the future
