New shipping method in Finland to help merchants with the COVID-19 outbreak

New shipping method in Finland to help merchants with the COVID-19 outbreak

We teamed up with Finnish package carrier Matkahuolto and an awesome ecommerce brand the other danish guy to pilot a new shipping method during the corona virus outbreak. The new shipping method offers shipping without any contact between the carrier and the end-customer. The shipments are fully tracked and delivered in the mailbox.

As the other danish guy uses Shopify ecommerce platform and our shipping app Packrooster, they asked if we could help integrating the new shipping method. We wanted to do everything we can to help businesses during times like these and the integration was completed in two days.

"We want to be flexible especially in these exceptional circumstances and respond to the needs of our customers. I'm happy that we get to develop the new service in a tight co-operation with the other danish guy. Our purpose is to expand the availability of this new service in future", says Kati Nevalainen from Matkahuolto

"To deliver shipments directly to the mailbox had been in our plans for some time, but especially now when all the unnecessary interaction has to be avoided, a reliable home delivery has a special value for people. The way to think by Matkahuolto and our technical partner Approosters in a thight situation like this has yet again pointed out, that collaboration based on trust you can achieve anything. Like this new shipping service, which is soon available for all the merchants in Finland", says the CEO of the other danish guy, Tommi Lähde
