French parcel delivery company Colis Privé has begun operations in Belgium, Luxembourg and Morocco. Operating under the Parcel Privé brand, it will develop its activities in these three countries through subsidiaries and local operators.
“The deployment of Parcel Privé internationally is a real strategic opportunity. We have identified local partners and some of our customers have already indicated to us their wish to accompany us to these new countries. Our model has developed around an offer entirely dedicated to e-commerce, whose success depends on the quality of its services, speed of execution at competitive rates and the crucial importance of customer satisfaction. It is this unique know-how but also our DNA that we want to offer to our international customers today,” said Frédéric Pons, co-president of Parcel Privé.
In Belgium and Luxembourg, Parcel Privé will be based on an optimized logistics scheme that processes orders quickly and efficiently to carry out next-day deliveries in the afternoon and evening. To do this, the delivery company will rely on an operational sorting hub in Willebroek, near Antwerp, an important commercial hub in Flanders.
Parcel Privé will also ensure environmentally friendly operations in Belgium and Luxembourg through the use of a network of subcontractors using a fleet of vehicles, 90% of which will be electric.
In Morocco, Parcel Privé will operate a license agreement with local operators who will benefit from Parcel Privé’s know-how in home and relay delivery, as well as its technologies, according to the company.
