Asendia is a joint venture between postal operators La Poste (France) and Swiss Post (Switzerland) which brings together logistics experience and smart technologies to support eCommerce businesses to grow internationally.
Strategically located in 17 subsidiaries worldwide, Asendia offers e-PAQ — their specialist range of international packet and parcel services designed for online retailers.
As part of La Poste Groupe, Asendia and DPDgroup have come together to build a premium service level, e-PAQ Elite, powered in Europe by DPD, designed for USA retailers who are expanding into Europe.
As Europe’s largest parcel delivery network, DPDgroup is positioned to provide a flexible and user-friendly service for online merchants and shoppers.
This solution is being offered in the US as part of Asendia USA’s e-PAQ Elite service, the fastest and most comprehensive delivery experience of the Asendia eCommerce range.
With e-PAQ Elite, powered in Europe by DPD, online retailers have access to delivery into the largest European eCommerce markets (France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Spain, UK) in 3-5 business days. The solution is fully available and some top eCommerce brands have already been onboarded during the pilot phase.
“This new service is a fantastic opportunity to enlarge the Asendia USA service range. The cooperation between Asendia and DPDgroup will enable US eCommerce companies to seamlessly access the DPD Predict Service from collection in the US to delivery to the overseas recipient,” said Robert DiVincenzo, CEO, Asendia USA. “Our US customers will now be able to offer shoppers a faster service at a cost competitive price point.”
