E2open, a cloud-based supply chain software provider, has recently enabled GEODIS, a global logistics provider. As a third-party logistics provider, GEODIS provides its customers with proven expertise in contract logistics, distribution, freight forwarding, road transport and supply chain optimization.
In response to the e-commerce boom and demand, GEODIS launched MyParcel to provide brands with a simple way to introduce or increase their e-commerce sales on a global scale. GEODIS MyParcel is an e-commerce shipping service that provides a realistic price point and transit time between express carriers and postal services. This service relies on E2open for global trade management and logistics, including document determination, landed cost calculation and shipment visibility.
“E-commerce has become global and grown significantly in recent years, creating both challenges and opportunities. To reduce the number of abandoned shopping carts of highly-desirable American-made brands due to expensive shipping costs, GEODIS built a solution for European shoppers that offers the right balance of shipping fees, delivery time and reliability,” said Manoj Pankaj, Vice President of cross-border e-commerce at GEODIS.
The service appears as a shipping option to any European customer shopping on e-commerce platforms when integrated into e-retailers' online ordering systems through application programming interfaces. When selected, GEODIS MyParcel option allows e-retailers to automatically validate delivery addresses, select customs tariff codes, provide a tax and customs duty calculator, offer an option to reschedule a delivery and track shipments door to door.
“E2open enables our clients to plan and execute the movement of goods anywhere in the world with the agility to respond rapidly to changes,” said Michael Farlekas, President and Chief Executive Officer at E2open. “GEODIS is a great example of harnessing the power of our integrated applications and the world’s most comprehensive and current repository of trade content to shift with demand and successfully manage processes spanning compliance to tracking goods in real-time. We are excited to see the GEODIS business continue to grow and thrive.”
