Cross-border mail and parcel delivery provider Asendia UK has launched its services on MetaPack’s e-commerce delivery management platform, providing retail partners with access to the carrier’s global delivery network of more than 220 destinations.
Formed as a partnership between La Poste and Swiss Post, Asendia will provide MetaPack retailers with a variety of delivery options for the French and Swiss markets and other destinations globally. Asendia is expected to announce the launch of services to key markets hosted on the MetaPack platform in the coming weeks.
Lloyd Webber, sales and marketing director at Asendia UK, said, “We know the French and Swiss markets inside out, and many leading retailers in the UK benefit from working with us. Our global head offices are in Paris and Bern so not only do we have unique access to the parcel services of La Poste and Swiss Post, we also have people who understand the French and Swiss consumer. They are after all French and Swiss consumers themselves. This insight can be invaluable to our retail customers in the UK.”
Simon Croft, carrier director at MetaPack, said, “The new partnership with Asendia will enable us to enhance our offer to brands and e-commerce retailers using the MetaPack delivery management platform, which will help them further expand their international strategies by meeting the needs of their customers across the world.
“Asendia’s reputation and reach makes them an ideal partner for us, and our collaboration will benefit and reinforce the portfolio of services delivered by both companies.”
