Parcel delivery service, CouriersPlease, has been announced as a last-mile delivery partner for Wish, one of the world’s largest mobile e-commerce platforms.
It follows a partnership agreement with parent company Singapore Post Limited.
As part of the collaboration, CouriersPlease, will handle import clearance and provide last mile delivery services for Wish’s customers in Australia.
The partnership is expected to significantly improve the shipping experience for Australian consumers, with shorter delivery timeframes and order tracking from warehouse to doorstep.
“This is a great opportunity for CouriersPlease, our franchise partners, and the communities they serve across Australia,” said Richard Thame, CEO of CouriersPlease.
“We’re committed to connecting online retailers with their customers and to be trusted with Wish’s impressive platform which features thousands of merchants, is testament to our reputation in the industry. Our mission is to be the fastest growing parcel and courier service in Australia and this agreement is a significant step in our growth journey.”
Eddie Lee, Head of Commercial of International Business at SingPost said the agreement would bring seamless cross-border logistics solutions and shipping services across the Asia Pacific region.
“By mobilising our network across Australia, we can significantly improve Wish’s delivery times, and ensure a heightened level of customer satisfaction,” said Lee.
Network expansion, especially across logistics partners, will reduce delivery times, too, for Australian customers.
“As a top-tier logistics provider, CouriersPlease’s expertise will be instrumental in refining our last-mile delivery processes and enhancing the experience for both users and merchants,” said Bill Zhang, VP of Global Logistics at Wish.
The announcement falls on the heels of Wish launching flat rate shipping in each of its major markets.
A flat rate shipping fee is applied to all eligible items over 10 AUD, at no additional cost to merchants.
