MetaPack has bought a US shipping software provider as it looks to move further into the North American market.

The development management systems company has bought Atlanta-based Abol Software, which has expertise in building cross-border shipping solutions.

As a result of the deal, MetaPack says European retailers will be able to provide more convenient and affordable international delivery to their customers.

Patrick Wall, chief executive and founder of MetaPack, said: “The latest acquisition is key for our international growth and demonstrates our commitment to providing a first-class service to our customers.

“The move will enable us to offer more competitive cross-border delivery services to retailers, while allowing them to venture into new markets and drive business growth.”

Sir Terry Leahy, former chief executive of Tesco and a member of MetaPack’s board, said this was a “landmark” event. “The acquisition will enable MetaPack to help their ambitious European retail clients achieve their international revenue goals,” he said. “It underlines the UK’s leadership position in global ecommerce and demonstrates the strength of UK tech talent. I’m excited about MetaPack and its capability to provide multi-carrier delivery solutions which are fundamental to driving the growth of online global retailing.”
