Viapost recently set up a partnership with the Upela transport platform. The freight forwarder is visible on the online platform via the V-UNIT offer, which provides transport of 1 to 3 pallets from France to arrival points in France and Europe.
Upela.com is a platform that allows you to compare the offers of the world's leading express transport companies and to send letters, parcels or pallets in a simplified way and at negotiated costs of up to 75% off for professionals.
Viapost, through this new partnership, adds to the list of more than 15 leading carriers. Thanks to partners such as Viapost, Upela wishes to support and accompany its SME and VSE customers in their activities, particularly with the acceleration of e-commerce and the emergence of new consumer requirements.
The health crisis has intensified the growth of e-commerce considerably, with sales of products on the Internet enjoying an estimated 32% increase. According to Fevad, there were 1.84 billion online transactions in the last 12 months.
The trend accelerated in the last quarter of 2020 : during the festive season, Colissimo faced a major challenge with 4 million parcels to be delivered per day.
