Often when we hear about new tools or services they are aimed at large retailers with massive turnover, so it was a real pleasure this week to speak to Malcolm Barrell, CEO of P2P to find out more about their new ONETRAK service.
The founders of P2P started out themselves as a small business and they recognise that many online sellers have the need of a modest but fully featured international delivery service so that’s what they’ve delivered. Taking all the best features from their existing TRAKPAK service, they’ve created a solution which enables you to send just one parcel, whether that be one a day, one a week, or literally a one off parcel, to anywhere in the world.
There’s no contracts, no long term commitment, just a fantastic simple accessible service that anyone can use and, if in the future your business grows, a migration path to TRAKPAK in the future. We asked Malcolm to tell us how ONETRAK can work for you:

Tell us about your success
Rubicon Watch Company Limited, based in the peak district specialising in watches and clocks, a family run business that started selling watches on market stalls over 30 years ago has grown to become one of the largest independent online retailers of Seiko products in the North of England.
Ecommerce was a relatively new venture for the team launching on Amazon and eBay as well as hosting their own website. Mainly focused on the UK market the company was looking to grow their international deliveries after having a number of issues with their existing international delivery supplier.
P2P was recommended by another business that had seen the benefits of partnering with a company dedicated to international ecommerce. Almost immediately they saw the benefits of the service.
The first lane P2P focused on with Rubicon was Australia, it was clear that Rubicans previous delivery solution was not meeting the needs of the Australian online shopper, by offering a solution that utilised trusted final mile partners that the local customer could engage with meant that Rubicon’s traffic to Australia soon out stripped the traditional European markets of France and Germany becoming their top international destination, seeing a 86% increase in volume since switching.
But it is not only Australia where P2P has helped Rubicon expand their business. Australia was a market that Rubicon knew they had a customer base, but they were struggling to provide the right service. However, Israel was a destination relatively unknown.
Israel is one of the fastest growing ecommerce markets with a propensity for fashion – particularly high-end fashion and designer wear. The Rubicon Watch Company Ltd brand was a perfect fit for that market and after discussing the opportunities the company decided to launch on the Israel eBay account and push into this market.
Since this launch at the end of 2018 Rubicon have seen over 35% increase in sales to Israel.
Already in just one month (July 18) Rubicon have increased and outperformed their entire 2018 peak period by 5 % with international exports making up 60% of all sales.
