Pitney Bowes strikes shipping deal
Commerce solution provider Pitney Bowes has partnered with parcel delivery service Sendle on a new shipping platform called SendPro.
The platform provides simple pricing with a national flat rate, including pickup and delivery guarantees through Sendle.
Clients also gain access to a wide range of solutions and services, including the ability to order shipping supplies such as packaging and labels through the Pitney Bowes’ online supplies store.
And clients that sign up for the premium version benefit from an introductory offer of a flat shipping rate of $6 for each satchel shipped anywhere within the country.
The platform is part of Pitney Bowes’ longer term vision to offer a comprehensive range of shipping solutions designed to meet the needs of small businesses across Australia.
It comes at a time when parcel deliveries are on the rise in the country.
According to the Pitney Bowes Shipping Index, overall parcel volume in Australia grew by 13 per cent reaching 794 million parcels shipped in 2016.
“For nearly 100 years, Pitney Bowes has worked to take the complexity out of mailing for our clients, and
now we are working to do the same in shipping,” said Stephen Darracott, Pitney Bowes country manager
“Our strategic partnership with Sendle is a milestone for us as part of our strategy to deliver a comprehensive range of shipping solutions. For small businesses, our solutions help drive revenue growth and deliver cost savings in shipping – an area that is vital today for conducting commerce.”
