Introduction to TNT (FedEx)
Updated: Feb 1
TNT was founded in Australia in 1946 by Ken Thomas. After 20 years of growth, he joined forces with a major competitor and created a new company: Thomas Nationwide Transport (TNT). In 1996, the Australian company became the subject of an acquisition by Dutch Post to become a multinational specializing in postal and express activities. In 2016 TNT was acquired by FedEx.
TNT Australia is becoming FedEx
It's fair to say TNT is in a bit of a flux at the moment as the FedEx integration rolls out. The effective date for integration is April 1, 2021. (Side note, never do any serious business on April Fool's Day. You'll regret it.) More info is here and is constantly updated https://www.fedex.com/en-au/connect.html
