To provide European consumers with reliable delivery at an affordable price from North America, GEODIS is launching ‘GEODIS MyParcel’ a new, guaranteed 4-to-6-day B2C delivery service from the United States to 27 European countries for companies seeking to develop their international online sales.
Although more and more web users are now visiting commercial websites located abroad, they often abandon their purchase halfway through the process due to high shipping costs, longer delivery times, Customs fees and taxes that are not revealed until after payment, and the lack of a clear return policy.
To overcome these hurdles, GEODIS is launching this direct-to-customer intercontinental delivery service with guaranteed delivery times at a lower cost. It includes validation of delivery addresses and merchandise HS codes1, a tax and Customs duty calculator (displayed throughout the payment process), as well as an option to reschedule delivery, and shipment tracking at all key stages.
“With the explosive growth of international e-commerce, our customers want to offer consumers a premium service at a completely transparent price,” explains Manoj Pankaj, Vice President- Cross-border E-commerce at GEODIS.
“We are helping brands to develop to their full potential in new markets by strengthening their international field of action,” says Ashwani Nath, Global Head of e-Channel solutions at GEODIS. “In the coming months we will be adding new geographical areas, both in terms of destinations and countries of origin as part of our global e-commerce strategy.”
