P2P Mailing, the mailing and distribution solutions provider, has announced a new two-year agreement to handle deliveries for The Hut Group.
The contract, which is worth several million pounds per year, makes P2P The Hut Group's preferred partner for international shipments. P2P will deliver items to all The Hut Group's international markets; chiefly China, Australia, US, Russia and Europe.
The new deal builds on the existing relationship between P2P and The Hut Group to widen the scope of the partnership and accommodate a dramatic rise in deliveries. Over the last two years The Hut Group's parcel volumes have tripled and are set to continue growing at this rate.
International untracked parcels will be handled through P2P's independent network. By utilising multiple entry points the network optimises cost and efficiency to ensure maximum quality of service is achieved.
Tracked deliveries will be processed through P2P's innovative TRAKPAK service. TRAKPAK was developed to serve a particular gap in the e-commerce delivery market. Previously, e-tailers sending items overseas relied on international post with limited tracking, or premium services which offered tracking but cost more. TRAKPAK provides a global tracked B2C delivery solution that focuses primarily on enhancing the customer experience.
TRAKPAK has been nominated for numerous industry awards including the World Mail Awards and the Hermes Retail Week Supply Chain Awards.
Rob Millington, Head of Couriers, The Hut Group said: "Our relationship with P2P is a hugely successful collaborative partnership. An extension of this association in terms of duration and scope is excellent news for us and our customers.
"P2P Mailing continues to modernise and develop new solutions to keep us ahead of our competition. It's all about personalising the delivery experience which is exactly what they help us to do."
Beth Chapman, Sales Director, P2P Mailing said: "More and more retailers are recognising the power of a successful delivery process; proven to boost sales and dramatically improve customer loyalty. To truly achieve this, retailers need to embrace innovations and continually evaluate their current systems.
"TRAKPAK is a unique, global service and is revolutionising how retailers view the delivery process and how they send products to their customers."
