Express Trailers broadens ShipLowCost.com horizons
Express Trailers has not only revamped its ShipLowCost online platform with a new look but more importantly, it has extended its offering to now allow customers to send anything they want to anywhere in the world through an online platform in just a few clicks.
“Since the genesis of ShipLowCost, it was always part of our strategic plan to also serve the local retailer in gaining access to the global market. Retailers are moving towards omnichannel by adding e-commerce to their brick-and-mortar outlets. One of the biggest challenges being on an island is the efficiency and effectiveness of the delivery of e-sales to customers around the world. By providing local online sellers with a platform that enables them to sell to anywhere in the world, we are actually enabling everyone to become a global retailer,” said Franco Azzopardi, chairman and CEO of Express Trailers.
“To date, ShipLowCost.com was geared mainly towards online shoppers who redirected their online purchases to one of our depots spread around Europe and from there, we had them shipped directly to Malta through our extensive road network. The strength in this offering is that we own our fleet and we have thousands of trips to and from Malta to make this offering efficient. Now, the service is being extended to anyone, business or individual, who wants to sell and ship to anywhere in the world.”
“In fact, we have launched the service now at this particular time of the year for those customers who might also wish to send presents to their loved ones abroad over the Christmas season,” added Azzopardi. “Being strongly entrenched in total logistics, we can support our exporting client through a few clicks, with a collection service, right-sizing of packing boxes and also for the bigger retailer, managed warehousing with a pick-pack-deliver option.”
“This project, to which we have been affording a lot of energy over the past three years, contributes further to strengthening Express Trailers’ leading position in Malta’s logistics sector,” added Azzopardi.
ShipLowCost.com is going to remain one of the main priorities and goals for 2019 for Express Trailers.
“From a commercial aspect, we are going to enhance ShipLowCost.com’s B2B capability to include an export service for online sales done by Malta-based retailers. With this new enabling service, one does not need to be a huge exporter to sell abroad. Indeed, one will be able to sell even small quantities and rely on the best of breed logistics for export and final delivery,” concluded Azzopardi.
