International mail, shipping and distribution company Asendia has announced the launch of Asendia Oceania as part of its latest phase of global expansion.
Online retailers in Australia and New Zealand will now be able to benefit from Asendia’s comprehensive range of digital, logistics and delivery services.
Lionel Berthe, Head of Asia Pacific commented:“Asendia Oceania will ensure that online retailers in Australia and New Zealand can deliver a world class cross-border shopper experience. For this, retailers need easy-to-use, trustworthy and comprehensive solutions to satisfy the growing demands of online global shoppers. These global shoppers are now wanting more choice and convenience in products, delivery and payment solutions.”
“We’ll bring the region a new approach to cross-border e-commerce which combines our extensive range of B2C postal and commercial delivery solutions integrated with selected services from our specialised cross-border partners,” Lionel adds
Asendia Oceania has recently established several strategic partnerships in the region in order to provide this new service:
eShopWorld, one of the world’s leading cross-border commerce companies, will provide a digital platform and global infrastructure to create in-country local shopping experiences for shoppers. The technology offers in-country pricing strategies, (including duties and taxes), and a local checkout that adds optimised address entry and local payment methods. eShopWorld’s platform ensures seamless access to delivery solutions provided by Asendia and manages a global network of in-country returns centres.
SelluSeller, a SaaS service for global marketplace management powered by Anchanto, will also be offered as a bundled service amongst Asendia Oceania solutions. This will give online retailers a single software solution for selling in major Asian, European and American marketplaces. The software provides real-time catalogue-management, price change and inventory synchronisation functionality, and shipping labels, all from one place.
Local logistics partners Tigers Australia and First Global Logistics NZ will provide a regional footprint for B2C and omnichannel fulfilment solutions. Tigers Australia has a nationwide warehousing network across Australia (Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney), specialised in multiple B2C vertical markets. First Global Logistics has facilities in Auckland and Christchurch. Further supply chain optimisation will be possible by drawing on Asendia’s and Tigers’ established global presence, including in China, Hong Kong, Singapore and the UK.
