Asendia drives growth
Swiss Post wants to grow in cross-border logistics and have a share in the large flows of goods and data. Its stakeholding in Asendia implements this strategy successfully in the e-commerce market. The international joint venture between Swiss Post and France’s La Poste is a proven, successful collaboration going back more than five years.
Mail and logistics business expanded
With the acquisition of the US e-commerce and mail company Globegistics, Asendia is strengthening its position in the United States. Through new partnerships with Israel Post and Irish postal service An Post, Asendia has also secured access to these markets.
On course for success: eShopWorld
Since 2013, Asendia has held a stake in eShopWorld, an Irish provider of e-commerce solutions, enabling a major expansion of its services. eShopWorld makes it easier for brands and retailers to access global markets, supporting them in webshop set-up, currency conversion, customs clearance, shipping and returns management. Voted exporter of the year at the Software Industry Awards in 2017, eShopWorld again saw substantial revenue growth in 2018.
Joint venture Asendia
Since 2012, Swiss Post and France’s La Poste have been conducting their cross-border activities in the mail sector as partners in the joint venture Asendia. The joint venture allows Asendia to offer its customers innovative solutions worldwide. With its branches in 15 countries, Asendia can provide its customers with professional and efficient support in sending mailings and consignments of up to 2 kilograms to over 220 countries.
