International parcel delivery firm Asendia, a joint venture between La Poste and Swiss Post, has partnered with national postal operator Israel Post to increase opportunities for e-tailers looking to sell into the Israeli market.

Ranked third in the world for international online purchases per capita, the Israeli e-commerce market offers an enticing prospect for international businesses, with expected annual revenue growth of 8.26%.

More than 90% of Israeli internet users have purchased items online, resulting in three million packages being sent per month in 2015. The country’s highly urbanized population of eight million had a smartphone penetration of 75% in 2015, with one in three online purchases being made from a smartphone.

To support retailers seeking to expand into Israel, Asendia and Israel Post have agreed on a global sales partnership for e-commerce solutions. Thanks to this agreement, retailers will have access to competitive and qualitative solutions through Asendia’s Tracked Goods service, enabling e-tailers to send packages up to 2kg (4.4 lb) in weight.

Marc Pontet, CEO, Asendia Group, said, “Israel has a promising and steadily growing e-commerce market, offering a wide variety of options for retailers. The partnership with Israel Post will create many opportunities for e-shoppers from the UK, the USA and continental Europe.”

Israel Post is the largest last-mile provider for main e-commerce marketplaces in the country. Its three main sorting centers handle 1.8 million items per day, and 2,200 employees deliver to every location in Israel.
