ParcelForce Worldwide has launched a new suite of international services following an 11 per cent rise in export deliveries in the past year.
Global Express, a fully trackable delivery service from next day to Europe and North America and delivery from two days to the rest of the world.
Global Priority, delivery from three days to destinations outside Europe.
Global Value, a parcel delivery service to major destinations outside Europe taking five to ten days with full tracking capabilities, available at a cheaper rate.
Global Bulk Direct, a cost-effective service which allows exporters to send a pallet with individual parcels going to different addresses to one destination. On arrival it is broken down and individual parcels are then dispatched to specific destinations.
Iain Johnson, international director of Parcelforce Worldwide, said: “Despite the tough economic climate, UK companies are recognising that there are export opportunities as a result of the weak pound, the growth of Eastern European countries and the continued strength of economies such as China and India. We have seen the number of global deliveries we handle increase by 11 per cent in the past year.
“Parcelforce Worldwide has responded by developing a new suite of international services which means customers will be able to choose the right product for them, at competitive prices, based on their differing delivery requirements.”
He added: “Whether a manufacturer or wholesaler needing to send an urgent next day package to the USA or Germany, or a retailer wanting to send a home delivery parcel at a truly competitive price to a rural area of Poland, our customers will be able to choose from an array of Parcelforce Worldwide services to meet their every delivery need.”
