DHL partners with ChannelAdvisor for global e-commerce

03 Oct 2018

DHL eCommerce has formed a strategic alliance with ChannelAdvisor, a provider of cloud-based e-commerce solutions.

Through the partnership, brands and retailers can easily expand internationally by reaching foreign markets and delivering to customers around the world, with a seamless connection to DHL eCommerce fulfilment and shipping.

"We're excited about this strategic alliance between DHL and ChannelAdvisor, which brings together two industry-leading companies to power the e-commerce opportunity for brands and retailers across the globe," says DHL eCommerce CEO Charles Brewer.

"By leveraging technology platforms, retailers and brands can accelerate their cross-border e-commerce strategy by easily expanding to new regions and selling to anyone, anywhere. This is made even easier with a global e-commerce logistics partner like DHL to ensure a seamless order fulfilment and shipping process."

ChannelAdvisor enables retailers and brands to sell on marketplaces and improve their online performance by optimising their operations.

With a single product data feed, retailers and brands can sync with over 107 marketplaces.

As orders and performance information flow back to the system, results are analysed and broken down to enable retailers/brands to optimize their e-commerce strategies.

As a strategic partner, DHL eCommerce will bring their expertise in e-commerce logistics and access to a global fulfilment network for customers on the ChannelAdvisor platform.

Customers can utilise the network of shared-use facilities at transactional prices to enable high-quality e-commerce order fulfilment with best-in-class operations and multiple shipping options.

"ChannelAdvisor's strategic alliance with DHL eCommerce gives us the opportunity to work with one of the largest global logistics providers," says ChannelAdvisor global business development vice president Paul Colucci.

"By combining ChannelAdvisor's industry-leading e-commerce platform with DHL's leading logistics capabilities, DHL eCommerce customers will be able to reach new consumers on marketplaces, while continuing to offer the best-in-class fulfilment and shipping they expect. It's essential that brands and retailers diversify their digital and multi-channel strategies to succeed in today's evolving industry, and we are honoured to be selected by DHL eCommerce to help its customers accelerate their sales strategies and meet demands."
