UK Mail joins Eurodis network

The alliance will allow UK Mail to provide its parcels and palletised goods customers with the range of delivery solutions that they enjoy in the UK, across Europe. UK Mail will exclusively provide collection and delivery services for the UK and Ireland and the linehaul that connects it to the Eurodis network.

The Eurodis consortium consists of key shareholders including Sernam in France, trans-o-flex Logistics Group in Germany and Benelux, Redur in Spain and Portugal, as well as Osterreichische Post AG who further strengthen the network with its parcel and logistics subsidiaries, mainly in South Eastern Europe – all working together as one network. All the shareholders come together as a network of organisations who are recognised operators in their own domestic markets.

UK Mail is no stranger to forming strategic alliances with strong international logistics providers to ensure that it can offer its UK customer base delivery solutions across the continent.

UK Mail’s CEO and now vice chairman of the Eurodis Supervisory Board, Guy Buswell said: “In times of globalisation, no logistics company will be able to fulfill customers’ requirements without being connected to a powerful international network.”

Both businesses were committed to ensuring the international exchange of goods between network partners and achieved this via the installation of a new IT-platform for data exchange, in April of this year. The system facilitates the distribution and conversion of shipment and status data on standardised interfaces allowing for a high degree of transparency amongst customers and partners alike. This real time track and trace service not only provides name, date and time of delivery but also provides online signatures for all partners. In addition, UK Mail customers can continue to work with the system that they are used to whilst receiving information on their international shipments.

Carsten Siebe, managing director of Eurodis GMBH says: “We see this partnership as a giant leap in continuous service and international tracking for our customers in today’s fast-paced global economy.”
