September 02, 2020: GEODIS is launching %u2018GEODIS MyParcel', a direct-to-customer intercontinental delivery service with guaranteed delivery times at a lower cost. This is a new, guaranteed 4-to-6-day B2C delivery service from the United States to 27 European countries for companies seeking to develop their international online sales.

"With the explosive growth of international e-commerce, our customers want to offer consumers a premium service at a completely transparent price," explains Manoj Pankaj, vice president cross-border e-commerce of GEODIS.

Although more and more web users are now visiting commercial websites located abroad, they often abandon their purchase halfway through the process due to high shipping costs, delivery times seen as too long, customs fees and taxes that are not revealed until after payment or even the lack of a clear return policy.

The service will be progressively expanded globally. It includes validation of delivery addresses and merchandise HS codes[1], a tax and customs duty calculator (displayed throughout the payment process), as well as an option to reschedule delivery, and shipment tracking at all key stages.

"We are helping them to develop to their full potential in new markets by strengthening their international field of action" said Ashwani Nath, global head of e-Channel Solutions of GEODIS. "In the coming months we will be adding new geographical areas, both in terms of destinations and countries of origin as part of our global e-commerce strategy".
