bpost and DHL team up for Benelux e-commerce deliveries
Belgium’s bpost and DHL Parcel are teaming up in a “non-exclusive partnership” operating under the banner “Dé Benelux bezorgers” to provide e-commerce deliveries in the Benelux region.
In a statement sent to Post&Parcel today (30 May), bpost said: “By joining forces in parcel drop-offs, sorting, delivery and returns, the partners boost cross-border e-commerce and offer online shops an all-in-one solution.”
bpost added: “The partnership between bpost and DHL enables Belgian consumers to shop at Dutch online stores in the evening and have their purchase delivered by bpost the next day. The same is true in the opposite direction, as Dutch customers can shop later in Belgian online stores for next day delivery by DHL. A big advantage is that cross-border return between Belgium and the Netherlands is as easy as shopping in your home country. The partnership also creates an all-in logistics solution for e-tailers, simplifying the administrative and operational processes. E-commerce growth which amount to approximately 10% in both countries is also supported by this partnership.”
Wouter van Benten, CEO of DHL Parcel Benelux, commented: “bpost and DHL are two leading innovative parcel deliverers working on a global scale.
“The partnership between bpost and DHL gives Dutch online stores access to a huge potential market of Belgian online shoppers and facilitates cross-border shopping, delivery and returns.”
