Yodel goes global, with launch of worldwide delivery service
By teaming up with key players, Yodel has designed the portfolio to take advantage of the local knowledge, resources and expertise these selected partners possess. The result makes overseas delivery as simple as sending a parcel down the road.
As with all of Yodel's services, Yodel World is designed to meet specific requirements for parcels of various weights, shapes and sizes.
Jonathan Smith, CEO of Yodel, said: "This move takes Yodel into a new, global market, expanding our portfolio to meet our clients' and their customers' demands. Yodel World allows us to provide an efficient and tailored international delivery service that utilises unrivalled delivery resources."
The Yodel World portfolio offers a diverse service range and includes a mixture of postal and commercial delivery options, provided in conjunction with Yodel's partners - KMUK Universal Solutions, bpost (Belgium Post) International and the international parcel unit of TNT Post. Yodel World launches with four services:
- Yodel World Mail offers delivery for packages under 2kg to anywhere in the world within 14 days. It provides a cost effective option for non-time critical, lower value items via Yodel's partner, KMUK Universal Solutions.
- Yodel World Pack, in conjunction with bpost international, provides a service that allows users to track their parcels at any time in the delivery process. Used for packages up to 2kg, it provides a truly convenient and economical way to send lighter items that require tracking.
- Yodel World Parcel combines the convenience of full tracking with the reassurance of delivery confirmation for parcels up to 30kg in weight. Yodel World Pack and Yodel World Parcel allow Yodel, in partnership with bpost International, to access premier postal parcel delivery networks, providing clients with the most convenient way to deliver to homes around the globe.
- Yodel Euro Express Home offers a specialised service for e-commerce consumer deliveries throughout the EU. This service provides clients with a parcel delivery option offering full tracking, insurance and proof of delivery. This option, backed by the international parcel unit of TNT Post, is designed to accommodate parcels up to 30kg, offering a single flat rate for each destination.
