Leaders in Commerce and Shipping Ink Premier Partnership to Offer Broad Range of Shipping Services to Customers
Las Vegas, NV - April 25, 2018 — Magento Commerce, the worldwide leader in cloud digital commerce innovation, today announced industry-leading Deutsche Post DHL Group, as a Premier Partner. The Premier-level partnership recognizes best-in-class technology solutions that help drive commerce innovation. Together, Magento Commerce and DHL will work to provide merchants with the progressive and flexible shipping options they need to deliver exceptional, end-to-end customer experiences.
Businesses have a tremendous opportunity to increase revenue by offering more shipping choices to customers. However, there is a still a large disconnect between what consumers expect and what merchants can deliver. According to a recent study from eConsultancy, 50 percent of abandoned purchases are due to inadequate shipping options. The partnership with DHL will provide merchants with various options for their customers to receive and return, including next day delivery, international shipping, and returns management.
“Commerce is no longer just about the “buy button” and our merchants are looking to meet their customers when and wherever they want to engage, buy, and receive their purchases,” said Mark Lenhard, Senior Vice President of Strategy and Growth at Magento Commerce. “By partnering with DHL, our joint merchants will be able to offer improved customer experiences and grow their business by providing their customers with the fast, convenient shipping options they expect.”
As a Premier Partner, DHL will work with Magento Commerce and its global partner network on strategic go-to-market strategies to educate and enable merchants on how to enhance their eCommerce shipping programs. In addition, DHL will have the opportunity to share best practices, product innovation, and thought leadership on key challenges that merchants are facing today, including how to increase cross-border shipping.
“We’re particularly excited about the potential of Magento Shipping, and will integrate our most advanced shipping solutions there,” said John Pearson, CEO Europe and Global Head of Commercial, DHL Express. “Deutsche Post DHL Group has a history of working with leading technology partners like Magento. We will maintain our global leadership position only by innovating and adopting new technologies. Magento Commerce is at the leading edge of eCommerce technology, and DHL is the global logistics leader. Our association is sure to benefit both organizations – most importantly our eCommerce customers.”
The announcement was made during the company’s 2018 Imagine conference, which brings together more than 3,000 eCommerce experts. The companies plan to integrate the full set of DHL shipping capabilities directly into the Magento Commerce platform.
