MetaPack expanding Carrier Certification Programme into Europe
MetaPack is set to expand its Carrier Certification Programme into Europe.
When it launched in 2016, the programme was originally designed as a membership scheme but it has since evolved into a broader industry standard, allowing the services of carriers who are on the MetaPack delivery management platform to be certified and always in a ‘retailer-ready’ state.
“The programme has proven to be a great success,” said Simon Croft, Carrier Account Director at MetaPack. “For our carrier partners the certification of their services is a huge endorsement and through our funding framework they are supported with ongoing maintenance tasks so budgeting has become easier. Retailers now have the fastest and most economical way to access certified carrier services, which helps them to expand their delivery options portfolio.”
MetaPack expects to add another twenty new carriers in the UK by the end of this year and has also announced that it will be expanding the programme overseas. It will be working with carrier partners in key countries across Europe to certify their services. In addition, the programme is now linked directly into MetaPack’s Carrier Mapping tool, which provides instant online access to carrier information by origin, destination and type. Certified carriers in the UK are listed, and European carriers will be added into the tool as they come onto the programme.
