Sendle’s expanding network makes delivery even more affordable

Sendle’s expanding network makes delivery even more affordable

Sendle, Australia’s small business courier service, has expanded its same-city zones, heating up its post price war with Australia Post

For small businesses, a few dollars can have a huge impact on the bottom line and long term success — this move will, enabling them to reach more customers at same city delivery rates.

A few examples of what the announcement means in practice:

  •  A small business can send a 3kg parcel from Sydney, NSW to Balcolyn, NSW by Sendle’s ‘same-city’ rates  of $9.90. If they sent the same parcel with Australia Post they would be classified in a ‘rural’ zone and charged $14.20 — a 42 % difference.
  • Similarly, a 500g parcel from Brisbane, QLD, to Mount Rascal, QLD is $5.80 and same-city with Sendle, but rural and $8.55 with Australia Post – a 32 % difference.
  • A  Perth-based small business can send a 10kg parcel to Munchea, WA for $9.90, a 67 % difference on the $29.80 they would spend with Australia Post.

Sendle raised $20 million in a funding round earlier this year to continue its growth and offer small businesses more choice and flexibility in the Australian market.

This news follows hot on the heels of Sendle’s recent commitment to offer more parcel drop off points than there are Post offices in Australia by 2020.

James Chin Moody, Co-founder and CEO of Sendle said: “As Australia’s fastest growing parcel delivery service, we are determined to give our small business customers an edge. Small businesses are at the heart of Australia’s economy and we are always looking for ways to provide them with cheaper services that are more reliable and flexible to boot.

By expanding our same-city zones we level the playing field even further. Whether you’re a mumpreneur, an eBay seller, or a millennial with a side hustle, every dollar that you save on parcel delivery is a dollar you can reinvest in growing your operations. And that’s what Sendle is all about”
