Extra Territorial Office of Exchange postal operator Direct Entry Solutions is increasing the range of delivery options offered by its PacketPort e-commerce solution. It will be using the International Post Corporation’s (IPC) PRIME Registered Post, for registered mail and parcel deliveries worldwide.
The service is a cross-border tracked parcels service that has been specifically developed for the e-commerce market. It will now be offered alongside D.E.S’s existing PacketPort Express, Tracked and Registered delivery services available to online sellers.
Customers will receive tracking information on their goods entering some of the world’s key e-commerce markets.
The items include priority handling, customer receipt on posting, online track and trace, customer confirmation of delivery (including, if needed, a signature from the recipient). There is the added security of all goods despatched being insured up to the replacement value stated on the receipt.
Speaking about the expansion of delivery services on D.E.S.’s PacketPort shipping platform, Phil Coleman, Chief Executive of D.E.S., emphasised the need to be flexible to what online sellers and the market needs.
“We are increasing our PacketPort portfolio because we want to give our customers increased choice so that they can choose a product that does what they need but is at the right price for them,” said Coleman.
“It’s desirable to have a track and trace service on goods shipped cross-border, and particularly where goods are entering some of the world’s big e-commerce markets. But sometimes that information comes at a higher price than is affordable for some customers. IPC’s PRIME Registered Post fills that gap perfectly by being value for money but without sacrificing quality and reliability.”
