The launch of its international shipping services portal, iThink Logistics International, has been announced by iThink Logistics, one of the fastest growing SaaS-based shipping platforms in India. The new business will allow thriving e-commerce companies (SMEs) and direct-to-consumer (D2C) brands to expand their e-commerce sales to markets around the world via strategic alliances with iThink Logistics International.
India’s international cross-border shipping market is expected to reach a value of $129 billion by 2025, and iThink Logistics is aiming to support the expansion plans of Indian e-commerce merchants by establishing a strong international service with its AI and machine learning-powered technology platform. The international shipping platform from iThink Logistics offers e-commerce sellers integration with all of the main online marketplaces, including Amazon, eBay, Etsy, and others. In order to fulfill these overseas purchases, this would enable online retailers to download orders, push tracking IDs, and finally connect retailers with the finest service alternatives accessible to them.
Following thorough research and understanding of the requirements of Indian international e-commerce shippers, iThink Logistics International designed its international products with an emphasis on cost-effectiveness, technology-enabled logistics, and improved transit time. The goal of iThink Logistics International Services is to provide Indian e-commerce shippers with a service option that falls between the India Post international services and multinational integrators.
The value proposition of iThink Logistics International comprises same-day pick-up, benchmark transit times made possible by direct airplane connections; and a variety of shipment injection choices in target markets; real-time tracking updates in both the country of origin and the country of destination; linked customer support; e-commerce-focused commercial customs clearing; seamless interaction with marketplaces and the client’s own website; and multi-mode choices.
Marketplaces like Amazon, eBay, Shopify, Magento, and WooCommerce may be connected to the iThink Logistics shipping platform with just a single click. Currently offered in Jaipur and Surat, the service will soon be made available in more than 30,000 origin postcodes and 20 cities by September 2022.
Zaiba Sarang, the co-founder of iThink Logistics, commented on the development, saying, “At iThink, we are particularly delighted to debut our international services for the Indian market. Our service delivery focuses on strategic alliances with major participants in the global logistics industry and data intelligence enabled by technology to provide complete shipment visibility and transparency supported by faster transit times. In the first year after our launch, our main goal is to concentrate on providing cross-border e-commerce shippers in India with a dependable, affordable solution with the main goal of assisting e-commerce shippers to retain and increase their rankings with their clients or market locations. Additionally, in all major cities, iThink Logistics International will provide shipment delivery to Amazon and other third-party warehouses. By March 2023, we want to provide our services in all significant destination markets throughout the US, CA, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.”
