Delta Cargo launches DeliveryDirect e-commerce service

Delta Cargo has launched DeliverDirect, a door-to-door delivery service for e-commerce retailers developed in partnership with SmartKargo.

DeliverDirect is designed for e-commerce retailers to optimise their direct-to-consumer shipping solutions by providing a swift service with transparent pricing.

It provides an end-to-end service that upgrades traditional ground or air shipping services with small package shippers benefiting from increased shipping speeds, an uncomplicated pricing structure, proactive alert management, transparent tracking and reporting, and access to Delta’s network.

Alison Ricker, Managing Director of Global Sales at Delta Cargo, says, “Through our strategic collaboration with SmartKargo, DeliverDirect gives e-tailers an alternative transportation solution that fits their customers' requirements, and we envision that this service will prove to be a fast, reliable and cost-effective solution.”

DeliverDirect can be tailored to shippers’ needs with services including personalised pick-up times, geo-fenced notifications for customers, multiple delivery attempts, signature-required deliveries, proof of delivery photos and access to advanced reporting features.

Milind Tavshikar, CEO and Founder of SmartKargo, says, “E-commerce shippers are looking for simple, faster and more reliable alternatives to deliver their products to consumers. Delta Cargo has a vision for small package delivery that will transform the US market and continue to diversify their already robust offering in the air cargo market. Their innovative approach makes them a fantastic partner for SmartKargo, and we look forward to growing this service together.”
