City Link targets B2C with cross border service

City Link is expanding into cross border small packet delivery with new services aimed at the business to consumer market.

There will be two services powered by bpost international.

Citypack Worldwide, an untracked packet service, is available now, and a tracked packet service, which will track individual packets through the UK onto the end delivery address, is set to launch in the summer.

Both services offer a delivery aim of 3-5 working days within the EU, 3-7 working days to the rest of Europe and 5-10 working days for the rest of the world.

“The requirements made of a logistics company have evolved swiftly in recent years, as the growth in e-commerce is constantly changing the shape of the consumer side of our business, said Tim Brown, sales and marketing director at City Link.

“It is imperative that City Link reacts to these changes by having a product offering which meets the demands of our customers. The introduction of our cross border packet offering is an exciting new development, allowing us to offer a one stop shop to our customers for worldwide services as well as within the UK.”
