’Don’t miss out on overseas sales boom,’ urges Parcel2Go

Parcel2Go has urged small businesses in the UK to ensure they are in a position to make the most of a predicted spike in demand from foreign markets.


A report by OC&C consultants and Google has suggested that overseas internet sales could be worth £28bn to Britain by 2020, up from £4bn today. Demand from European and Asian markets is expected to be strongest.
Parcel2Go has called on firms to be proactive and ensure they are able to capitalise on rising demand by having a strong online presence and a delivery system that won’t fall apart if sales begin to rise rapidly.
Bolton-based Parcel2Go works with a number of the world’s major courier companies and offers a wide range of services that are used by businesses across a huge range of industries.
Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said: "It’s no surprise that online sales are expected to increase further over the coming years, but if this level of demand from overseas buyers is realised then firms in the UK have to be ready to take full advantage.
“Being able to rely on experienced partners to get orders to customers in countries around the world is an essential part of running a successful international business and Parcel2Go is here to help. Firms can trust Parcel2Go couriers to make deliveries safely and on time and that kind of peace of mind is worth an awful lot.”
According to data from Google, the number of overseas internet searches for British goods and brands has already increased significantly. European consumers are particularly interested in UK companies and their products, as are shoppers in north America and Asia. 
Parcel2Go helps organise in excess of two million domestic and international shipments every year. Its courier partners offer economy and express services to all major European hubs like Germany and France, along with all parts of Asia including China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
