Enhanced International Parcel Delivery, Return Service Solution Targets Online Retailers

Newgistics, which provides end-to-end e-commerce solutions for retailers and brands, announced the international expansion of its parcel delivery and return services. This new offering helps to reduce the costs of cross-border delivery and make it easier for U.S. retailers to access and begin selling into the largest markets overseas, including the U.K., Europe, Asia, Australia, Russia, China and South America.

Key features of Newgistics’ International Solution include delivery to 34 key global markets with plans for future expansion; full end-to-end tracking; direct injection into local markets and carriers to ensure local delivery expertise; pre-paid and paid in-country returns processing; fast customs clearance; parcels delivered duty paid; and full control over packaging, email communications and other details so retailers can maintain a consistent brand experience no matter where their customers reside.

According to eMarketer, global consumer spending through e-commerce is expected to hit $1.5tr in 2014, and is being driven by growth in emerging markets. This creates significant opportunity for U.S.-based retailers that are prepared to sell internationally.

“Managing logistics is one of the biggest challenges for e-tailers expanding overseas because international shipping has been expensive and often complicated, hit by delivery delays, customs hold-ups and unexpected additional charges,” said Ted Tanner, vice president of global solutions, Newgistics. “As a result, many U.S.-based e-tailers have been reluctant to target overseas customers, but we’re helping to change that. Our mission is to help retailers break down the barriers to growth in e-commerce and our new international delivery service gives them a fast, cost-effective solution to the challenge of international home delivery.”
