Australia Post partners with Shippit
Delivery start-up company Shippit has announced that it is now working with Australia Post. Shippit launched its e-commerce and logistics technology platform in February 2015. Through its relationship with courier companies – including CouriersPlease, TNT, Mail Call Couriers, Fastway Couriers – Shippit enables the retailers using its platform to offer their customers 3-hour time slot delivery services in addition to standard postal services.
In a statement sent to Post&Parcel today (29 March), Shippit said: “The deal with Australia Post will mean Shippit’s retailers now have access to a vast distribution postal network.”
Robert Hango-Zada, co-founder of Shippit, commented: “With 7 out of 10 online purchases being delivered by Australia Post, this is a terrific opportunity for Shippit’s technology to help reduce friction and provide a better experience for local retailers and their customers. The addition of Australia Post means that Shippit now harnesses access to over 11,000 delivery vehicles Australia-wide – making it one of Australia’s largest delivery platforms.
“This obviously presents meaningful supply-side validation of our technology. Australia Post see the value in what we have developed and are looking to Shippit to help them provide a better delivery experience to their customers. In addition, with the scale of their network and reach of their customer base, this means we can rapidly rollout our beautifully designed delivery technology, touching more parts of the ecommerce industry in a shorter period of time.”
