The online retailing industry has continued to boom over recent times and now e-tailers are growing their businesses by incorporating international shipping. 30% of all online cross-border trade in Europe comes from the UK according to the European Multi-channel and Online Trade Association. A majority of small online retailers are also expanding internationally on marketplaces such as eBay and Amazon.
With the new international delivery service, customers are offered worldwide delivery to over 160 destinations. Customers book online using the easy booking form which automatically generates any customs invoices that may be needed. Parcels are collected from the customer and moved within the UK Mail network, allowing shippers to benefit from group economies of scale and market leading prices.
Guy Buswell, CEO of UK Mail said, "The demand in international shipping has risen, after intensive research and feedback from our customers we are proud to launch an international delivery service. UK Mail as a group has over 40 years experience in worldwide shipping, integrated with the convenience and low cost nature of ipostparcels.com it's a strong combination.
With this launch we're able to give more choices to consumers and small businesses to send business parcels or gifts at incredibly low prices to anywhere in the world from the comfort of their homes."
UK Mail launched ipostparcels online next day collection as well as ipostparcels next day delivery service back in 2011 to serve the consumer, eBay and SME market. The service doesn't require customers to have a minimum shipping volume and can be used as an ad hoc service with all collections and deliveries going through parent company UK Mail's network.
