Scurri, the next-generation delivery management platform, today announces its strategic partnership with Asendia, the world’s leading ecommerce logistics provider, to offer carbon neutral cross-border delivery (through offsetting) to the brands and retailers on its platform.
Asendia, a division of La Poste and Swiss Post, is at the forefront of providing parcel solutions for ecommerce shippers that sell and deliver internationally. The company’s core ecommerce offering, e-PAQ, has led the industry in carbon neutral shipping through its accredited carbon-offsetting program since 2022, offering sustainable, dependable, and low-cost global shipping.
Brands and retailers on the Scurri platform, including mutual customer Brand Alley, are now able to access two Asendia solutions. e-PAQ Select offers a fast, tracked, value parcel service that provides retailers with access to preferred final miles carriers in the main and emerging global ecommerce markets, while Asendia’s e-PAQ Plus service offers tracked postal services worldwide.
This latest partnership with Asendia extends Scurri’s existing sustainable delivery offering internationally, building on its recent partnership with HIVED – which provides zero-emission delivery carrier services within the UK.
Rory O’Connor, CEO and Founder of Scurri commented: “As the UK domestic market for ecommerce becomes saturated, brands need to expand cross-border to seek out new growth opportunities. At the same time, many of the highest spending customers around the world are rightly prioritising sustainability when buying online.”
“However, Scurri’s retail partners don’t need to overhaul entire supply chains to satisfy shoppers’ sustainability demands. Our partnership with Asendia provides access to carbon-neutral delivery options, allowing brands to meet customer expectations and support the ongoing global drive to limit the impact of consumption on the environment.”
Amy Collins, Head of Asendia Global CSR Engagement, commented: “We’re very excited to add Scurri to our partner ecosystem to allow international sellers on its platform to deploy a carbon neutral cross-border delivery strategy. Together, we can help UK retailers meet consumer demand by making their international shipping process more environmentally friendly.”
With over 1,000 carrier services and 97% carrier coverage in the UK, Scurri provides a robust and reliable last mile delivery service to retailers. The company offers the highest level of flexibility in the industry for effective carrier management and shipment allocation, to improve speed and choice for shoppers, as well as maintain cost-effective and efficient fulfilment operations for retailers.
