Sendle: Melbourne has been the e-commerce engine driver during COVID
Sendle, Australia’s first 100% carbon neutral parcel delivery service has today announced a major expansion of its Melbourne international pick up service in response to growing demand from Melbourne’s thriving small business and side hustler community.
Sendle has added 74 more suburbs to its pick up zone for international deliveries, stretching from Point Cook to Gisborne and out to Dandenong South. The move increases Sendle’s Melbourne coverage for international deliveries by 25 %, with more than 344 postcodes now in the pick up zone.
With its overseas deliveries more than doubling last year, Sendle CEO and co-founder James Chin Moody believes the demand for simple, reliable and affordable international shipping is greater than ever — especially in Melbourne where many in the small business and side hustler community are seeing online sales skyrocket.
“Melbourne has been the eCommerce engine driver during COVID and we’ve witnessed our customers shipping at record levels. They’ve also been sending more goods overseas. Expanding our international pick up zone will help even more small businesses ship their products internationally and keep growing online as we continue to experience one of the biggest shifts to eCommerce the world has ever seen,” James said.
“With so many businesses expanding online and selling beyond Australia’s borders, having a door-to-door international pick up service is critical. Whether you’re sending designer Melbourne mugs to customers in New Zealand or Australian made gifts to relatives in the US, Sendle can now help more Aussies do this.”
