ECS targets e-commerce with new mail business

Cargo sales agent ECS Group is targeting the growing e-commerce market through the launch of a mail solutions business.

GSA Mail Solutions will cater for airlines and postal operators allowing them to outsource mail and e-commerce activities, as well as offering transport solutions to postal operators through its 140 airline customers’ networks.

“Helping airlines to tap into this postal traffic on their destinations and accompanying them on new routes, offers them new sources of revenue. Our expertise in managing these flows along with the digital solutions we offer (customised EDI solutions in particular) also makes it possible to maximise capacities and guarantee parcel traceability,” said ECS Group chief executive Adrien Thominet.

He added: “With GSA Mail Solutions, postal operators have access to our entire network of airlines without having to go through endless steps. We therefore offer them an unprecedented increase in efficiency, because via a single point of contact — GSA Mail Solutions — they have access to a multitude of air freight solutions to route their postal flows wherever they need them.”

The new division will be able to meet the regulatory and technical requirements of postal operations, ECS said.
