Harvesting Global Opportunities

International package transparency

International posts are finding innovative ways to grow despite declining mail volume around the globe.Royal Mail’s European parcel business GLS has expanded its FlexDeliveryService to France and brought Saturday and evening deliveries to Berlin and Munich. FlexDeliveryService provides delivery notifications by email or text messages, and allows recipients to select preferred delivery times.Norway Post credits its cost-cutting efforts and restructuring for achieving revenue growth this year. As with other posts, the company has seen steep declines in letter mail and increased demand for parcel delivery and logistics.Singapore Post has said online shopping now accounts for as much as 27 percent of its revenue. The company has used its strategic location to reshape itself into an e-commerce shipping powerhouse for the Asia-Pacific region.E-commerce also helped sustain “strong” third quarter revenues for Belgium’s bpost, which saw domestic parcel volumes up more than 10 percent over last year.
