Yodel launches international services

Parcel carrier Yodel has launched a series of international delivery services in partnership with  KMUK Universal Solutions, bpost (Belgium Post) International and the international parcel unit of TNT Post.

Yodel World Mail is a non-time critical service under two kilos to anywhere in the world within 14 days. Partner for the service is KMUK Universal Solutions.

It has formed a partnership with bpost international to offer Yodel World Pack and Yodel World parcel both of which offer tracking. The first service is for packages up to two kilos while the parcel service will take parcels up to 30 kilos.

The fourth service, Yodel Euro Express Home, is designed for e-commerce consumer deliveries throughout the EU. It is working with the international parcel unit of TNT Post and can handle parcels up to 30 kilos.

Yodel chief Jonathan Smith said: “This move takes Yodel into a new, global market, expanding our portfolio to meet our clients’ and their customers’ demands. Yodel World allows us to provide an efficient and tailored international delivery service that use unrivalled delivery resources.”

* Last month Yodel set out plans to close 45 depots to create single operating network. The company was formed in March last year following the takeover of the DHL domestic network by Home Delivery Network. Since then it has been running two operation networks.
