Shipper Partners with Retail Outlet

Shipper partners with retail outlet

Recently, FedEx announced a partnership with Home Hardware Stores Limited, a Canadian-based home improvement center, to offer full-service shipping solution centers to customers within Home Hardware stores. Implementation is expected to roll out in phases over the course of the year.

Each store is operated by an independent “Home Owner,” and each owner will evaluate the in-house shipping center for possible inclusion in their store.

In its official announcement, FedEx states that the partnership will give “…online shoppers more points-of-access options to meet their shipping needs.” Both companies expect the partnership to yield beneficial results for their customers.

Home Hardware, founded in 1964, has annual sales of $5.4 billion from the nearly 1,100 retail locations throughout Canada. President and CEO of Home Hardware Paul Straus states in the partnership announcement, “This exciting alliance with FedEx Express Canada is one of the many ways in which we continue to innovate to add more value to our customers’ shopping experience.”

As companies look for opportunities to increase brand awareness and product access to customers going forward, additional alliances similar to the FedEx/Home Hardware partnership are likely to unfold.
