Mailing and distribution solutions provider P2P Group has announced the launch of a new direct entry solution for Norway with a 3-5 day delivery guarantee.
The new delivery platform is available to retailers via P2P’s flagship TRAK PAK service and provides extensive coverage of the region thanks to the company’s partnership with Bring, a subsidiary of Nordic postal operator Posten Norge.
The partnership is based on import arrangements between P2P, Posten Norge and Norwegian Customs, and eliminates the need for retailers to establish fiscal representation within Norway, a requirement that has previously been a barrier for accessing this market directly. P2P is the only service provider that is able to access the extensive network in Norway in this way, numbering more than 1,450 collection points and over 1,500 routes into remoter areas of the country.
Paul Galpin, managing director, P2P Mailing, said, “We are delighted to offer retailers unprecedented access to this lucrative market via our TRAK PAK service. Traditionally, retailers have only been able to access Norway by either sending items using untracked mail, with the obvious disadvantages to track-and-trace visibility, via E-Parcel Group (EPG)/Universal Postal Union (UPU) parcel style services, where service quality can be variable, or via express services which are costly.
“In contrast, TRAK PAK offers consumers a choice of delivery options, either to home or a designated collection point, as well as complete end-to end visibility with key tracking events, including the date and time of delivery, captured online.
“With the introduction of innovative and cost effective delivery solutions and strong partnerships with our local delivery partners, we are helping to dispel notions that Norway is a restrictive market for overseas retailers.”
