Yodel has partnered with freight forwarder DG International to launch a streamlined global outbound service to UK retailers.
The new service has been developed to provide a fast and efficient home delivery solution to over 200 countries and territories for parcels up to 30kg. By partnering with DG International, Yodel is now offering retailers flexible overseas road and air shipping solutions and customs expertise.
The service offers end-to-end tracking via the Yodel website using a single reference number. Transit times range from 3-5 days for European parcels to 6-10 days for the rest of the world.
Duncan Lee, Yodel’s director of international business development, commented, “Amid talks of the growth of UK online shopping slowing down, we’re seeing an increased retailer focus on cross-border sales to continue their expansion. Global internet penetration is increasing and our new international service has been designed to enable retailers to open their online stores to emerging markets that they possibly hadn’t considered before, as well as those already established.”
