Transportation and logistics provider Geodis has expanded its direct-to-customer (D2C) cross-border delivery offering MyParcel, with an Air Zone Skip service from the USA to Canada.
Geodis MyParcel’s Air Zone Skip service is intended to provide US retail shippers with a faster method to ship small parcels to Canada. It consolidates individual shipments via air transportation with final delivery to the end consumer, bypassing multiple touchpoints. The service includes tracking visibility and management over the entire shipping process from pick-up to customs clearance through last-mile delivery.
The Geodis MyParcel Air Zone Skip service now serves the Canadian provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario Prince Edward Island, Quebec and Saskatchewan. Geodis MyParcel was first launched in January 2022 in light of the demand in the cross-border B2C e-commerce market. The Air Zone Skip service has been implemented to support this segment.
Michael Lamia, senior vice president of Geodis MyParcel and Geodis e-logistics, said, “Zone skipping can be an extremely beneficial strategy for high-volume e-commerce shippers who are looking to increase operational efficiencies, lower shipping costs per package and reduce transit times. As e-commerce shippers continue to navigate consumer expectations for faster speeds, it is vital to work with a trusted logistics partner with a full breadth of expertise across air, ocean, road and last mile – including alternative shipping methods like zone skipping—to remain competitive in today’s dynamic market.
“Simply put, Geodis MyParcel provides domestic e-commerce brands with a simple way to go global. Whether shipping to Canada, the UK or our 26 designated European countries, Geodis MyParcel allows brands to continue growing their e-commerce business on a global scale by offering the right balance between speed and price to provide a seamless delivery experience to customers.”
