Delivery specialist myHermes has launched a cost effective international delivery solution to help SMEs ship items to 190 countries worldwide.
The new service from myHermes International claims to be 31%, or £12.51 (US$19.26), cheaper than Royal Mail when sending an individual parcel to Australia, and 12%, or £1.55 (US$2.40), lower for parcels heading to Germany.
The move comes in response to the latest myHermes research that revealed an average of 78% of shoppers across the UK, France and Germany have made an online purchase from a foreign retailer. The UK also topped the poll of countries that French and German shoppers have bought from.
Carole Woodhead, CEO of myHermes, said, “The world is becoming an increasingly smaller place and therefore delivery standards and price play a key part in enabling overseas customers to purchase from domestic retailers.
“The demand for UK products, especially fashion items, is high and continues to grow so we wanted to develop a service that provides smaller businesses with seamless access to as many countries as possible.
“myHermes continues to enhance its portfolio of products with new and innovative solutions that provide unrivalled levels of service to its clients. myHermes International offers a unique combination of scale and local presence, and by offering attractive rates for international delivery smaller retailers will be able to actively pursue a strategy of growth into Europe and beyond.”
The myHermes network incorporates six continents in total and includes countries such as Australia, China and the US as well as all major European states. The service offers a fully tracked end-to-end functionality that can be monitored online.
