Logistics, e-commerce and IT solutions provider One World Express plans to expand into India by November 22, 2021, in the wake of DHL’s withdrawal from the area, planned for November 30.
As DHL eCommerce has been one of India’s largest cross-border logistics service providers, One World Express intends to move into its space and ensure that all Indian merchants can continue to ship products globally with minimal disruption to operations. In particular, the logistics provider will focus on smaller vendors by providing them with cost-effective shipping solutions. The logistics company’s entrance into India means that merchants will soon have access to its international shipping platform, Ship2world.
Powered by One World Express’s Smarttrack technology, Ship2world’s platform presents merchants with shipping options to enable them to optimize their routing. Ship2world also connects to vendors’ online shops, meaning that any sale made automatically notifies the platform of a shipping order and connects the merchant with multiple courier options.
Atul Bhakta (right), CEO of One World Express, said, “We are perfectly poised to step into the shoes of one of India’s e-commerce giants. One World Express is a well-established global logistics firm and following the successful UK rollout of our Ship2world platform, we are confident that we will not only fulfil the international shipment needs of Indian merchants but improve upon the service they have enjoyed in previous years.
“The combined forces of Ship2world’s innovative platform and One World Express’s sophisticated Smarttrack technology will enable merchants to continue shipping their products worldwide. It will also provide them with more efficient and cost-effective courier solutions to improve their overall business performance.
“India’s e-commerce market is growing at an exponential rate, and it is the ambition of Ship2world and One World Express to ensure it continues to do so in the years to come. We are absolutely delighted that we can play a part in empowering micro, small and medium enterprises [to]expand and export into global markets.”
