June 10, 2015: Direct Entry Solutions (D.E.S.), the mail distribution specialist and owner of PacketPort, the parcel delivery service, is delighted to announce the launch of an ETOE (extraterritorial office of exchange) operation with Austrian Post in the United Kingdom.
The ETOE underscores D.E.S.'s commitment to the wholesale market by building a premium wholesale solution in co-operation with an enterprising and dynamic postal office.
The wholesale market includes printers, mailing houses, fulfilment centres, mail consolidators and post rooms.
This unique agreement means Austrian Post will provide key advantages to D.E.S.'s wholesalers by increasing the range of value-added and high quality products available to them. This cooperation will enable D.E.S clients to reach international markets through access to Austrian Post's extensive global distribution network directly from the UK, leading to shorter delivery times.
Wholesalers can rely on and benefit from Austrian Post's strong reputation for reliability, transparency and quality of service.
D.E.S. has always focused on client satisfaction and gaining true practical expertise in specialist areas. The co-operation with Austrian Post enables D.E.S. to continue to meet demand in the market for flexible solutions tailored to what wholesalers actually need to support their business.
Speaking of the agreement, Phil Coleman, Chief Executive of D.E.S., said: "We are thrilled to be giving wholesalers access to Austrian Post's unrivalled expertise and efficiency.
It fulfils our ambitions to provide a first of its kind, comprehensive and high quality service to the wholesale market."
The UK market is a priority for the Austrian Post: "We are very pleased to be offering our international mail products and services in the UK with a direct access to our global network. The UK is an important market and D.E.S. is a respected player and a reliable partner of Austrian Post. We see a major opportunity here with D.E.S. to offer wholesalers a viable and trusted postal service," said Thomas Auböck, Senior Vice President Key and Business Accounts, Mail & Branch Network Division, Austrian Post.
The new service will start at the beginning of July 2015.
