DHL eCommerce Solutions is partnering with Cyprus based ACS Air Courier Services Ltd.
Under the deal, ACS Air Courier Services is to be a partner in the DHL Parcel Union that offers ‘Parcel Connect’, a European standardised service for parcels and returns.
Alexander Schmitz-Hübsch, Vice President Product Management Connect, DHL eCommerce Solutions, comments: “With ACS Air Courier Services, we have a new strategic partner that enables us to offer an enhanced service for Cyprus, tailored to the needs of our e-commerce customers. Our partnership model ‘Parcel Union’ is now available in 27 markets and we are looking to extending this network to all markets of the European Union in due course.”
The companies say that business and private customers alike should benefit from the service. Using Parcel Connect customers in Cyprus will be able to receive package notifications via SMS or e-mail and specify a preferred time or an alternative delivery location via app. ACS Air Courier Services also offers customers a “Cash on Delivery” service, which means the recipient pays for the goods upon delivery.
Alkis Matsis, CEO of ACS Air Courier Services says: “We are very excited about our cooperation and becoming a member of the DHL European parcel network. Utilising our extensive presence throughout the island, including 40 Service Points and 70 delivery vehicles, the partnership gives us the opportunity to grow further in the European e-commerce delivery business for both imports and exports.”
