Cloud-based e-commerce shipping solution ShipStation has partnered with parcel carrier Yodel for last-mile deliveries across the UK. The new partnership will see Yodel join ShipStation’s carrier services platform, enabling new and existing merchants to choose Yodel as their carrier of choice for domestic deliveries.
By joining ShipStation’s platform, more SMEs will be able to access Yodel’s flexible delivery services, including Yodel’s Xpect service – where customers receive a two-hour delivery window on the morning of their delivery – and the carrier’s Xpress service.
Matthew Trattles, VP of small and mid-sized business (SMB) revenue at Auctane, ShipStation’s operating brand, said, “At ShipStation we’re always looking to add innovative carriers to our platform that empower our SME merchants with the tools to grow their business and drive exceptional delivery services. Yodel suits our needs perfectly, as they’re one of the most prominent carriers in the UK, known for their excellent customer service, comprehensive nationwide coverage and for providing great value to merchants. We look forward to working with them to provide existing and new merchants with more choice and convenience when it comes to domestic deliveries.”
Mike Antwoon, sales director at Yodel, said, “Our new partnership with ShipStation in the UK allows us to provide clients with easy and direct access to our delivery service via a simple integration. Our variety of services places us in a strong position to provide delivery options for businesses of all sizes. From standard deliveries to more specialized requirements, we provide greater flexibility and control when it comes to shipping.
