Pitney Bowes (Stamford, CT), a global shipping and mailing company that provides technology, logistics and financial services, has announced the expansion of its Designed Delivery Service into the Canadian market. The new service will enable Canadian brands and retailers to reach consumers throughout Canada and the United States. “Pitney Bowes is excited to help make e-commerce logistics easier for Canadian brands and retailers,” said Gregg Zegras, EVP and President of Pitney Bowes Global Ecommerce. “We are bringing to bear our mature U.S.-domestic delivery network, deep Canadian carrier partnerships, knowledge of the Canadian consumer, and expertise in cross-border logistics, to offer tailored services for Canadian retailers who want to deliver the absolute best order experience for their customers.”
The new service will help Canadian companies optimize delivery speed and reduce shipping costs here and to the U.S. Built on decades of experience working in the Canadian market and helping U.S. and UK retailers reach Canadian consumers, the service offers:
• Sorting facilities in or near populous coastal areas to optimize transit times across Canada.
• A highly diversified ‘last-mile’ delivery network that leverages a wide variety of delivery-provider partnerships to continuously improve performance and cost, with a single integration and single invoice, all aimed at making multi-carrier processes easier and more cost-efficient.
• Customizable branded tracking at no additional cost, to create a seamless and loyalty-driven order experience for brands and consumers.
Clients of the Designed Delivery Service, which was purpose-built for B2C e-commerce, may also take advantage of Pitney Bowes’ consultative teams to configure the best solution possible based on each shipper’s unique needs – whether they’re marketplace operators or sellers, independent retailers, or third-party logistics providers.
