Delivery management platform Scurri has announced a strategic partnership with e-commerce provider Asendia to offer carbon neutral cross-border delivery (through offsetting) to the brands and retailers on its platform.

A division of La Poste and Swiss Post, Asendia provides parcel solutions for e-commerce shippers that sell and deliver internationally. The company’s core e-commerce offering, e-PAQ aims to offer sustainable, dependable, and low-cost global shipping.

 Scurri has over 1,000 carrier services and 97% carrier coverage in the UK. Brands and retailers on its platform, including mutual customer Brand Alley, are now able to access two Asendia solutions. e-PAQ Select offers a fast, tracked, value parcel service that provides retailers with access to preferred final miles carriers in the main and emerging global ecommerce markets, while Asendia’s e-PAQ Plus service offers tracked postal services worldwide.

This latest partnership with Asendia extends Scurri’s existing sustainable delivery offering internationally, building on its recent partnership with HIVED – which provides zero-emission delivery carrier services within the UK.

Rory O’Connor, chief executive and founder of Scurri said: “As the UK domestic market for e-commerce becomes saturated, brands need to expand cross-border to seek out new growth opportunities. At the same time, many of the highest spending customers around the world are rightly prioritising sustainability when buying online.

“However, Scurri’s retail partners don’t need to overhaul entire supply chains to satisfy shoppers’ sustainability demands. Our partnership with Asendia provides access to carbon-neutral delivery options, allowing brands to meet customer expectations and support the ongoing global drive to limit the impact of consumption on the environment.”

Added Amy Collins, head of Asendia global CSR engagement: “We’re very excited to add Scurri to our partner ecosystem to allow international sellers on its platform to deploy a carbon neutral cross-border delivery strategy. Together, we can help UK retailers meet consumer demand by making their international shipping process more environmentally friendly.”
