An Post/Asendia link up to boost cross-border sales

An Post and Asendia, a joint venture of La Poste and Swiss Post, have formed a partnership to help cross-border retailers take full advantage of a growing ecommerce in Ireland. The partnership allows Asendia offer retailers access to the last mile delivery of An Post, from the 15 countries where Asendia operates.

Last year, the fast growing ecommerce in Ireland was worth 6.7 million euros. Data from Asendia shows that cross-border shopping is expected to account for over 77% of this market. Around two in three Irish cross-border shoppers buy from the United Kingdom, with China and the US being the next most popular shopping destinations.
Saturday and evening delivery

CEO of Asendia Marc Pontet explains why they chose to work with An Post:

“We chose to partner with An Post because their services offer a long list of unrivalled benefits such as Saturday and evening delivery, safe places and three delivery attempts. These are the features that online shoppers are looking for.”
Gilles Ferrandez, Commercial Director, An Post, says that the Company is evolving to meet the demands of modern ecommerce. “By partnering with Asendia we are able to expand solutions in the UK, across continental Europe, the USA and Asia; this is a really exciting opportunity for us to grow our reach.”
