International courier One World Express has partnered with e-commerce technology developer Orange Connex to launch a new global shipping platform.
Ship2world has been created to enable businesses to develop more efficient shipping strategies. Powered by One World Express and its Smarttrack technology, Ship2world’s platform enables merchants to access a plethora of shipping options and to optimize routing.
One World Express partnered with Orange Connex due to its track record in facilitating international shipping services to merchants selling internationally on online marketplaces such as eBay. This new platform provides an outbound service for UK merchants to international markets across the world, leveraging the international shipping infrastructure Orange Connex established over the years.
In the UK for example, the partnership will deliver competitive pricing for merchants shipping to four leading e-commerce export markets: the USA, Canada, Australia and Germany and later expanding into other countries.
Ship2world is designed for vendors ranging from sole traders to established SMEs. It quickly sorts through more than 130 leading logistics companies to find the best quote to ship their goods anywhere in the world.
The platform also provides merchants with the flexibility to adjust their courier strategy, and switch carrier providers, should a more efficient option present itself.
Ship2world’s technology also connects to the vendors’ online shop, meaning sales automatically generate shipping orders.
Atul Bhakta, CEO of One World Express, said, “This is a really exciting new partnership. By combining One World Express’ plethora of experience and knowledge within the logistics sector with Orange Connex’s outstanding standardized international shipping services and strong technology capabilities, we can empower merchants to take their products to new, international markets.
“The timing couldn’t be better. The pandemic has resulted in a huge e-commerce boom – but it has also raised logistical challenges, which have been compounded by Brexit. Ship2world can help vendors overcome this issue, connecting them to cost-effective, efficient solutions. This tech platform is perfectly positioned to nurture the international ambitions of businesses of any size.”
Andrew Yang, CEO of Orange Connex, added, “Orange Connex is committed to providing a superior 4th party logistics and supply chain services for global e-commerce players, empowering cross border trade reaching new heights. Through this partnership, we are delighted to be able to expand to the UK markets. We are eager to help merchants propel their businesses into the future with this exciting new game-changing platform.”
