The ecommerce-ready courier aggregator has announced a deal with DHL to offer deliveries to more than 220 countries.
As we have previously reported, courier aggregator Sendle offers a nationwide door-to-door delivery service at significantly less than the cost of postage. Now the company has announced a deal with DHL eCommerce which it says will bring cost savings to international deliveries.
DHL eCommerce delivers to more than 220 countries and territories.
Sendle is clearly targeted at small to mid-sized online retailers, integrating directly with ecommerce platforms, either directly (as with Shopify and Neto) or indirectly via services such as ReadyToShip, ShipStation and StarShipIT. But it can be a money-saver even if you only send the occasional parcel or satchel.
“From day one, our mission has been to unlock the power of big business delivery infrastructure for millions of small businesses,” said Sendle CEO and co-founder James Chin Moody.
“Our agreement with DHL eCommerce, a true world leader in logistics, is a major step forward in levelling the playing field in Australia. By doing so, we aim to help more small businesses expand globally and thrive in the Amazon age.
“With this international parcel delivery service, our customers will be able to ship internationally within a few clicks and pay for it online — it has never been so simple.”
There's no indication of what the rates are going to be, other than they “are going to save you a pretty penny compared with other providers,” according to Sendle.
Chin Moody added: "We expect Sendle’s international shipping service to be available to selected Sydney customers in time for Christmas deliveries and to rollout nationwide in 2018.”
Existing customers can register their interest via the new International tab in the Sendle dashboard, while potential customers can do so here.
