Asendia Group acquires wnDirect as part of their global ecommerce strategy, which aims to create a larger ecommerce focussed business with an expanded range of delivery and postal services, mail solutions and fulfilment capabilities.

Asendia Group and wnDirect have attended TDCGlobal (The Deliver Conference) yesterday, which is the first outing for both companies following the acquisition deal.

Simon Batt, former CEO of wnDirect assumed the role of CEO of the new combined company from 1st of January 2019. The two companies will, over a period of time, fully merge and operate under the single brand of Asendia UK.

Asendia and wnDirect were seen as a very good fit as their strategies and ambitions are aligned and, together, they offer a much broader range of e-commerce, mail and fulfilment services. With wnDirect now onboard, customers will benefit from new options including wnDirect’s global commercial delivery network, and innovations including PUDO (Pick-Up-Drop-Off) and Return solutions, which we’ll offer to our customers in the UK and worldwide.”
– Simon Batt, chief executive officer, Asendia Group

We are delighted that wnDirect is joining the Asendia Group. wnDirect is a perfect complement to our existing business. On behalf of all of Asendia’s 1,500 staff around the world, as well as our shareholders Swiss Post and Groupe La Poste, I welcome the entire wnDirect team to Asendia.”
– Marc Pontet, chief executive officer of Asendia Group
