TNT Limited's Logistics Services in Asia (A): The Strategy
Meredith Hellicar's mission as general manager of corporate development is to make TNT Ltd. one of the biggest and most diverse transport and logistic companies in the world, with approximately $5 billion in turnover in 1993, a leading provider of logistics services in Asia. The case describes the approach she used to rank countries and select China and Thailand as priority markets. She has just presented her recommendation to the board when a major independent distributor in Indonesia contacts her for a potential partnership. She has to rapidly decide how to handle this unexpected opportunity and reconsider her priorities.
