wnDirect further expands its reach in the US

Nov 11, 2013

wnDirect is an example of entrepreneurial thinking at its best. Now well established as an industry leader in the UK, wnDirect came to market with the attitude that international logistics solutions for retailers could, and should, be different. wnDirect felt that logistics services had not kept pace with the growing eCommerce market and, as a result, were not responding to the industry's specific needs. wnDirect changed that over 8 million parcels later they now have a portfolio of leading online retailers benefiting from their fresh thinking and are set to take that expertise stateside.

To date wnDirect has concentrated on building its UK outbound services. Delivering to over 13 key destination countries (with 8 more coming soon!) and with the launch of cutting edge technologies such as Duty & ID Management, wnDirect are now looking to reproduce this success elsewhere.
wnDirect already deliver over 2 million parcels to the US each year. Leveraging on that success and the relationship with its US based sister company, WorldnetShippingInc, wnDirect has now launched its US outbound service giving US based retailers the opportunity to implement global logistics solutions which have been developed specifically for eCommerce. By partnering with wnDirect, retailers can benefit from tried and tested solutions specifically tailored for this market.

Stuart Hill, MD of wnDirect said: "There is huge growth opportunity in the US for online retail growth. Larger retail chains are investing more in onmichannel efforts tying together stores with online shopping which means the online shopping experience has to match that of the store. The delivery options are vital in that process."

The US is a vital location for wnDirect, in terms of both its inbound and outbound services. To further enhance its US presence and the coverage of service it is able to provide retailers, wnDirect has launched two new in country injection points into the US - Los Angeles and Chicago. This means retailers can now, in partnership with wnDirect, offer a 3-day delivery service to Chicago, Los Angeles and New York (the three biggest cities by population in the US).
