A division of the world's logistics company, Deutsche Post DHL Group, DHL eCommerce will partner with Shopee, a leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, to offer greater convenience to Shopee users in Thailand. Sellers on Shopee can now access over 500 DHL ServicePoints across the country to drop their parcels and have them delivered to buyers throughout Thailand. Sellers can also access a collection service from DHL that allows for door-to-door delivery to their buyers.
“We are thrilled to be partnering Shopee to offer greater ease, choice and control over the online delivery experience. Shoppers’ expectations are growing with regards to their entire purchasing experience – from the click to purchase until the goods are received. A recent report states that 60 per cent of consumers purchased from one online merchant over another because delivery options were more convenient for their needs, highlighting the pivotal role of delivery in the overall online shopping experience,” says Kiattichai Pitpreecha, Managing Director of DHL eCommerce.
To mark the start of the partnership, Shopee and DHL will be extending a limited-period free shipping promotion where Shopee sellers can enjoy free shipping nationwide from now until June 30, if they select DHL as the logistics provider for their shipments.
