Yodel offers global parcel distribution out of the UK through DG International

British parcel carrier Yodel has partnered with specialist freight forwarder DG International in order to launch what it describes as a “streamlined global outbound service” for UK retailers.

Through the partnership with DG International, Yodel will be able to offer retailers flexible overseas road and air shipping solutions, and customs expertise out of the UK.

In fact, the new Yodel International service will provide “a fast and efficient home delivery solution” for dispatch to over 200 countries/territories of any parcels of up to 30kg weight.

Transit times will vary between three and five days for European parcels and from six to ten days for the rest of the world.

The collaboration between the two businesses has been driven by increasing demand for such a service. “There has been a steady growth in cross-border sales in recent years, thanks in part to improved consumer confidence, but also to the increase in reliable internet connections,” a statement from Yodel outlined.

And Duncan Lee, Yodel’s director of international business development, observed: “Amid talks of the growth of UK online shopping slowing down, we’re seeing an increased retailer focus on cross-border sales to continue their expansion.”

“Global Internet penetration is increasing and our new International service has been designed to enable retailers to open their online stores up to emerging markets that they possibly hadn’t considered before, as well as those already established.

“The appetite is definitely there from overseas consumers and, with the current exchange rate, they are keen to buy from British retailers,” Lee informed.

James Appleby, managing director of DG International, enthused: “With the spread of Internet technology, the opportunities for retailers to enter new territories such as Israel and Saudi Arabia and offer customers a truly end to end service are really exciting.”
