wnDirect brings international logistics expertise to the US: wnDirect is an example of entrepreneurial thinking at its best. Now well established as a market leader in the UK, wnDirect came to market with the attitude that international logistics solutions for retailers could, and should, be different. wnDirect felt that the services had not kept pace with the growing eCommerce market and, as a result, were not responding to the industry’s specific needs. wnDirect changed that. 7.8 million parcels later they now have a portfolio of leading online retailers benefiting from their fresh thinking and is set to bring that expertise to the US.
