MetaPack’s Carrier Mapping Tool Now Delivers Access to Carrier Routes and Services Worldwide
LONDON – 21 May, 2018– MetaPack, the global leader in eCommerce delivery technology, has announced that with immediate effect, it will provide comprehensive access to worldwide origin data on carrier routes and services through its unique Carrier Mapping tool.
At launch in January this year, the service provided retailers and brands with information on all routes and services offered by carriers on the MetaPack platform in the UK. However, with the addition of EU data available from the end of April, and rest of the world data added over the past two weeks, the company has reached a major milestone in its objective to provide retail customers with increased delivery choice and convenience as they grow globally.
Alexei Haigh, Global Head of Carrier Product at MetaPack, said: “The provision of EU data, particularly in Germany and France, has been a significant boost for our retail partners, allowing them to make much broader choices, against clear carrier criteria, in the European geography. However, access to category leaders, certified carrier services, and all others on our platform across the entire globe provides them with opportunities that they simply can’t realise from any other source.”
Since the product was introduced at The Delivery Conference on January 30th, MetaPack has added a number of new enhancements to its Carrier Mapping tool. These include carrier service codes which are the unique identifiers that each carrier uses to differentiate its routes and services, and a full refresh of all available data to ensure the tool provides a single, authoritative source of carrier information.
“We promised that we would provide EU and rest of the world data quickly, and, given the popularity of Carrier Mapping already, we anticipate that it is set to be an indispensable tool in the retailer’s armoury from now on,” commented Haigh.
