ESW links with UPS for faster global delivery
ESW has forged what it calls a “ground-breaking alliance” with UPS to offer brands faster D2C e-commerce access in international markets.
The company said UPS will provide integrated international e-commerce and shipping capabilities for brands aiming to accelerate their D2C, “enabling them to be more effective at reaching global consumers via cross-border e-commerce”.
It also means UPS customers and ESW clients will see “significant capabilities to deeply localise their online shopping experience and leverage UPS’s global transportation and customs brokerage platform for delivery”.
It’s certainly an interesting development given that the international shopping process remains far from perfect for many consumers and if brands can improve the experience, they’re more likely to see customers returning.
Patrick Bousquet-Chavanne, ESW’s President and CEO, Americas, said: “The ability to get a one-stop solution that combines ESW’s technology and deep localisation expertise with UPS’s expansive logistics and transportation network will give retailers of any size greater access to consumers on a global scale. This agreement leverages our entire logistics and payments ecosystem as well as UPS’s extensive global transportation network to remove barriers and alleviate the friction that often impedes brands and retailers from selling directly to consumers regardless of where they live in the world.”
