Spring UK announces integration with Hermes, Yodel and DHL Parcel UK
Spring UK, the shipping company and courier, has revealed it will be fully integrating with Hermes, Yodel and DHL Parcel UK with the aim of powering the delivery of more ecommerce merchants’ consignments.
And speaking of the upcoming festive season, the company says it expects to handle 25% more items in the run-up to this Christmas than it did during the same period last year.
In a statement, the Managing Director of Spring UK says the company is in a unique position to help ecommerce merchants develop their online retailing activities, especially if you trade actively across borders:
Our role is quite distinct from that of many other post and parcel businesses in that whilst we have a clear expertise and market-leading delivery services of our own to the Benelux countries, we increasingly act as a broker or consultant to leading brands. To fulfil that role effectively and honestly, we need to be able to offer a wide range of services rather than merely pushing our own. As the significant rise in volumes for this peak season and the growing number of retailers with which we are working both show, ours is an approach which is paying dividends – both for them and for ourselves. We believe that as the delivery market becomes more segmented and, for instance, a larger proportion of sales made by UK-based retailers of all sizes continue to go to European consumers, there will be an even greater requirement for the kind of service that we offer.
– Steve Ferguson, Managing Director, Spring UK
Spring UK is wholly owned by PostNL and will now enjoy full integration with Yodel and DHL Parcel UK as a result and that opens up a truly powerful delivery network. Are you a satisfied user? Let us know about your experiences.
