With the acquisition, Packlink joins a suite of solutions tailored to provide shipping and fulfillment services to enterprises of every size.

“We welcome Packlink employees, customers, and partners into the Auctane family. We’ve been following their growth and success for years and after our first conversation with the Packlink executive team, we knew we were perfectly aligned on the mission to help every merchant around the world be exceptionally efficient at fulfilling customer orders.”

With Packlink, Auctane is able to further serve the needs of European businesses.
