Any retailer, in any market, wants to make sure that the post-sales experience is as great as it can be. So any improvement will increase the percentage of returning customers. When there are specialists like parcelLab in the market that can solve that problem using minimal resources, it makes sense to partner externally on this and offer customers an immediate benefit.
