Royal Mail has today announced the purchase of NetDespatch, a leading software solution provider.

NetDespatch specialises in parcel data management and labelling platforms for retailers and parcel carriers, and already supplies shipping label solutions for many of our medium-sized retail customers.

The purchase compliments the acquisition of our Click and Drop developer Storefeeder earlier this year, which provides similar services for small online marketplace sellers, and Market Engine, which helps businesses manage online shops globally.

NetDespatch specialises in using delivery data directly transferred from order management and warehouse systems to automatically produce shipping labels and other documentation. The platform can also allow the customer to track items from despatch to delivery.

This is part of our strategy to capture new growth opportunities by enhancing and expanding our parcel offering.
