MetaPack, a supplier of e-commerce delivery technology, has achieved year-on-year revenue growth of 25% when compared with the 2014-15 financial year.
Approximately two thirds of MetaPack’s new business in 2015 was secured in mainland Europe, helped by the company’s presence in the Netherlands, France, Germany and Spain.
To support its pan-regional expansion, MetaPack has increased its employee base with an additional 82 appointments during the course of last year and extended its global reach through existing strategic partners, including key relationships with vendors of e-commerce/multi-channel, order management systems (OMS) and warehouse management systems (WMS).
The MetaPack commercial team acquired a total of 36 new European retailers and brands during the past year while maintaining 100% retention of existing enterprise customers.
Patrick Wall, CEO of MetaPack, said, “2015 was an outstanding year for MetaPack which saw us signing more and more enterprise-sized customers and serving them globally. Some of the leading retail brands that have joined our customer community in the last 12 months include PVH Corp, which owns brands such as Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein; Pets at Home; Brands4Friends; Carrefour; and FNAC. We are proud to announce that, of Europe’s top 50 online retailers, a third are now using MetaPack.
“Due to all the investments that we made in our technology over the last year, Peak 2015 was fantastic as was our intention. Not just in the run up to Black Friday, but throughout all the ‘mini peaks’ that lead to Christmas. During Black Friday weekend, our availability was between 99.99% and 99.999%; our systems supported 80,000 requests per minute and ensured that over 3 million parcels were shipped on Peak day effortlessly handling volumes 45% higher than the previous year,” concluded Wall.
