One of the biggest courier brands, DTDC has tied up with Asendia, a joint venture between French postal service La Poste and the state-run Swiss Post, to give its customers access to Asendia’s global cargo transportation network. Headquartered in Paris and Berne, Asendia has a network over 200 countries. DTDC’s customers will have access to its network while Asendia will make inroads into India’s rapidly growing ecommerce market. “The biggest advantage Asendia gives us it the huge postal network backing it. No pin code or zip code is inaccessible,” Abhishek Chakraborty told a daily newspaper. 

Chakraborty said the services through the tie-up will cater to major players such as eBay and Amazon in India but also to MSMEs that sell to customers abroad.
