FedEx and BigCommerce join forces

FedEx and BigCommerce join forces

FedEx Express, one of the largest express transportation companies, has announced a new alliance with BigCommercean open SaaS e-commerce platform.

BigCommerce merchants signing up for the FedEx-BigCommerce alliance programme can enjoy enhanced shipping capabilities, with access to a “premium delivery experience” for their customers at reasonable prices.

The benefits include highly competitive rates and enhanced shipping capabilities.

“The collaboration with BigCommerce is yet another milestone for FedEx as we continue strengthening our capabilities within the e-commerce ecosystem to best serve businesses in this region,” said Kawal Preet, president of Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa (AMEA) at FedEx Express. “With e-commerce being a key driver of global trade in the post-pandemic world,  a level playing field will support e-merchants of all sizes to compete on a global scale. That’s why alliances such as these are so critical for small medium enterprises (SME) to strengthen their delivery capabilities and meet their customers’ heightened expectations while expanding their footprint overseas.”

The strategic alliance comes as e-commerce in the Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa region (AMEA) region is on a skyrocketing growth trajectory fuelled by the pandemic.

In Asia Pacific alone, e-commerce sales are expected to nearly double by 2025, reaching $2 trillion. Online sales in the Middle East and Africa region (MENA) are also projected to exceed $50 billion by the end of 2022.

 “Every decision we make ladders back to helping BigCommerce merchants grow and scale their businesses and deliver the best customer shopping experiences. It’s never been more important for merchants to equip themselves with the most reliable shipping solutions to ensure their products are delivered in a timely manner,” said Shannon Ingrey, vice president and general manager of APAC for BigCommerce. 

“Our collaboration with FedEx unlocks more options for BigCommerce merchants to offer premium delivery experiences as part of their end-to-end e-commerce journey. We look forward to working with FedEx to ensure our merchants have all the resources available to meet customer needs quickly and efficiently.”
