Sendle takes on Australia Post this Christmas with flat-rate $13.45 global delivery

Sendle is taking on Australia Post this Christmas, with a new “parcel anywhere” offering that lets customers from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide send 250g parcels anywhere in the world for $13.45.

Launched earlier this week, the flat-rate offering is designed to empower Australian small businesses to ramp up their e-commerce efforts and make their mark on a global stage during the busiest retail period of the year.

“For many small businesses, shipping is actually one of biggest pain points of selling overseas, but by offering affordable logistics we can unlock Australia as a global market,” Sendle founder and chief executive James Chin-Moody tells StartupSmart.

“The Australian dollar is now close to $US0.70, and one positive is that we are now very competitive internationally. Now is the time for small businesses to think about how they want to expand their reach.”

Chin-Moody says Sendle’s parcel anywhere offering is 63% cheaper than Australia Post’s parcel post rates, and also includes door-to-door delivery, meaning no fussy paperwork or trip to the post office.

Sendle is partnering with DHL e-commerce to send these parcels across the globe, and will also be offering 500g and 1kg shipping options. Read more
