One World Express company to tackle cross border issues in continental Europe
One World Express Europe GmbH, based in Leipzig, Germany has began operating in the continental European market. The company is part of the UK-based One World Express group and offers One World Express group services and solutions to direct mailers, solution providers and delivery companies throughout continental Europe.
The new company will work closely with partners and solution providers in Europe to create customised solutions.
All the new software, value added services and hardware have been developed by the One World Express group itself and are designed to provide customers with maximum flexibility when it comes to integration and customisation.
Online retailers currently face a range of barriers to seamless cross-border ecommerce, both in Europe and worldwide. These include costly access to labelling, elaborate integration into courier, express and parcel company software, a lack of end-to-end shipment tracking, and significantly higher delivery rates than for national mailings.
The One World Express group has been breaking down these barriers for the past decade. With its own shipment platform, global access to unrivalled delivery rates, free labelling and continuous tracking, One World Express is already a leading player in cross-border ecommerce in Asia and the UK.
“Developments in cross-border ecommerce in continental Europe lag around 11⁄2 to 2 years behind those in the UK. One World Express has established its European company in order to meet the strongly growing demand for solutions on the continent,” says Walter Trezek, Managing Director of One World Express Europe GmbH. “Figures from the key continental European markets – Germany, France, Italy, Spain and the BeNeLux countries – clearly underline this growth trend,” he adds, explaining the rationale behind the formation of the new continental European company.
“The One World Express group platform can already offer partners in Europe the widest possible range of options for sending commercial items according to the preferences of the recipient, paired with unmatched levels of transparency and a choice of over 200 CEP service providers,” explains Martin Füll, a director at One World Express Europe GmbH.
“The One World Express group is delighted to have engaged two respected industry leaders to manage our continental European activities”, says Atul Bhakta, CEO of the One World Express group. “Martin has more than 15 years’ experience in the European postal and parcel market, and Walter has been playing an instrumental role in shaping the fundamentals of the e-logistics market in Europe and worldwide for the last 2 decades,” he adds.
