One World Express helps Canada Post overcome backlog
One World Express has been chosen as Canada Post’s first Authorised Service Provider in the UK for their Direct to Canada “Expedited Domestic” tracked parcel solution.
Due to the strikes at Canada Post over the last five weeks, there is a massive backlog of mail which is not expected to clear till 2019.
In addition to the current backlog, Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales will add millions of parcels to the problem and so delivery, even with an Expedited Domestic service, will suffer from severe delays.
Standard UPU Mail has also stopped due to the current situation and global postal operators cannot service Canada through the normal UPU route.
One World is now able to provide cost effective deliveries into Canada via Canada Post.
With the help of One World’s IT System – called Smarttrack – the company can provide shipping almost instantly.
For smaller sellers a simple login will allow them to produce the required labels and start shipping immediately. The system has CSV file upload functionalities for medium size shippers and a single API for larger shippers that opens up over a 100 carriers to ship worldwide.
Atul Bhakta, Group CEO of One World Group stated “We are excited about our relationship with Canada Post and look forward to bringing much needed solutions to Canada to the UK Merchants. We will be working very closely with the executives at Canada Post through this challenging times and endeavor to minimise the delays as best as possible.”
Commenting on the partnership,
Misko Kancko, Global Strategy & Partnerships at Canada Post Corporation said: “On behalf of Canada Post, I am thrilled that One World Express has joined our Global Direct Entry Service.
I am confident that together we will be providing our Canadian Shoppers and European merchants/ sellers a truly valued service-fully tracked, excellent transit time and all the benefits of our domestic delivery features.“
