Having secured new deals with many e-commerce players in the past few months, Sendle has landed one of its biggest deals to date – a new partnership with global logistics giant DHL.

The partnership targets small businesses that will see Sendle managing domestic pickups in Australia while DHL eCommerce offering deliveries access across 220 countries and territories in its network.

"Delivery performance is a critical success factor for any e-commerce business and an extremely crucial part of the consumer’s shopping experience," DHL eCommerce CEO Charles Brewer.

"Australian SMEs are winners in this partnership as we combine DHL’s global expertise and reach with Sendle’s deep knowledge of small businesses to create simple and affordable solutions for international parcel delivery."

Sendle CEO James Moody says the company has always aimed to unlock big business-level infrastructure for small businesses.

"Our agreement with DHL eCommerce, a true world leader in logistics, is a major step forward in levelling the playing field in Australia," Moody says.

"By doing so, we aim to help more small businesses expand globally and thrive in the Amazon age.

"With this international parcel delivery service, our customers will be able to ship internationally within a few clicks and pay for it online — it has never been so simple."

In anticipation of future growth, Sendle is inviting small businesses to register to be part of a new pilot program.

"With the partnership now signed, we expect Sendle’s international shipping service to be available to selected Sydney customers in time for Christmas deliveries and to rollout nationwide in 2018. Watch this space," Moody says. 

The partnership comes at a good time for Sendle, which has seen a 20 per cent month-on-month growth in revenue.

It recently announced that it has crossed 1 billion kilometres of carbon-neutral parcel delivery across its network.

Meanwhile, the DHL Group plans to reduce all logistics-related emissions to net zero by the year 2050.

It aims to become the market leader in green logistics and plans to expand its portfolio of green products and services to help customers achieve their own climate protection targets.
