DHL eCommerce has announced a tie-up with ChannelAdvisor, a cloud-based e-commerce solutions provider, to enable e-retailers to export using DHL eCommerce fulfilment and shipping.
“We’re excited about this strategic alliance between DHL and ChannelAdvisor, which brings together two industry-leading companies to power the e-commerce opportunity for brands and retailers across the globe,” says Charles Brewer, CEO, DHL eCommerce.
“By leveraging technology platforms, retailers and brands can accelerate their cross border e-commerce strategy by easily expanding to new regions and selling to anyone, anywhere. This is made even easier with a global e-commerce logistics partner like DHL to ensure a seamless order fulfilment and shipping process.”
ChannelAdvisor’s role is to enable retailers and brands to sell their goods on marketplaces and to improve their performance online through optimising their operations. ChannelAdvisor’s system allows the client to have a single market product feed that can be synchronised across more than 107 marketplaces. This enables the business to drill down into the figures and optimise their e-commerce strategies.
DHL eCommerce meanwhile is to bring their expertise in e-commerce logistics and gives businesses access to their global fulfilment network for those using the ChannelAdvisor platform. Online retailers can thereby utilise the global network at transactional prices, enabling high quality e-commerce order fulfilment with best-in-class operations and multiple shipping options.
“ChannelAdvisor’s strategic alliance with DHL eCommerce gives us the opportunity to work with one of the largest global logistics providers,” says Paul Colucci, Vice President, Global Business Development, ChannelAdvisor. “By combining ChannelAdvisor’s industry-leading e-commerce platform with DHL’s leading logistics capabilities, DHL eCommerce customers will be able to reach new consumers on marketplaces, while continuing to offer the best-in-class fulfillment and shipping they expect. It’s essential that brands and retailers diversify their digital and multi-channel strategies to succeed in today’s evolving industry, and we are honored to be selected by DHL eCommerce to help its customers accelerate their sales strategies and meet demands.”
