MetaPack is to expand its Carrier Certification Programme to Europe, two years after its initial launch as a membership scheme. It will work with carrier partners in key countries across Europe to certify their services.
Since its initial launch, the company says the scheme has evolved into an industry standard allowing for quicker on-boarding by retailers since the services of carriers on the MetaPack delivery management platform are comprehensively certified and in a ‘retailer-ready’ state.
“The programme has proven to be a great success,” said Simon Croft, carrier account director at MetaPack. “For our carrier partners the certification of their services is a huge endorsement and through our funding framework they are supported with ongoing maintenance tasks so budgeting has become easier. Retailers now have the fastest and most economical way to access certified carrier services, which helps them to expand their delivery options portfolio,” he said.
MetaPack plans to add another twenty new carriers in the UK by the end of this year. The certification programme is also now linked directly into MetaPack’s Carrier Mapping tool, which provides instant online access to comprehensive carrier information by origin, destination and type.
