ETrak is a new, advanced delivery service that can offer you the cost-effective solution you need to send out your products to customers around the globe. The service is an end-to-end solution for shipping parcels of a number of sizes internationally, and includes a nationwide collection service and sortation.
Our state of the art technology tracks the item (or items) through every step of its journey, from collection and processing to delivering to our delivery partners and finally, doorstep delivery. All of this can be processed through our innovative, in-house tracking system, ensuring constant visualisation over the products.
The system ETrak uses is designed to enhance the efficiency of any e-commerce shipping operation, streamlining the process so that your business is saved both time and money. This is primarily achieved through the practice of route optimisation, ensuring that your products are delivered to their destination in the fastest time possible. In turn, you will find reduced transit times and shipping costs for your business, and you will be able to offer your customers the quickest delivery available, at a series of more competitive rates.
Every parcel which makes its way through the ETrak system passes through several stages in a “lifecycle”:
The service will collect the items you wish to have shipped.

Your parcels will be handed to a trusted courier for your intended destination.

Handling the administration relating to customs and cross-border selling is hardly the most exciting element of online retail. But keeping up to date with regulatory changes is key if you are to continue to provide a smooth, cost-effective and efficient service for consumers. To ensure a smooth transition to the new VAT system, the EU has created the Import One-Stop Shop (IOSS). This is a simple to use digital portal that facilitates the collection, declaration and payment of VAT for sellers. Businesses can use the IOSS from the 1st of July 2021 to meet their VAT e-commerce requirements on distance sales of imported goods.Read more
When looking into the logistics of selling your goods internationally there are two options, DDP and DDU. The country you’re shipping to may impose duty or tax on your shipment, depending on factors such as origin, e country of origin, retail value of an order, the reason for export and shipping destination. Every country has its own set of rules, regulations, and taxes for importing, and it’s important to know your options if you’re looking to spread your sales net far and wide.
These duties and other charges can be paid by either the sender (you, the seller) or the receiver of the shipment (your customer). Delivered Duty Paid (DDP) and Delivered Duty Unpaid (DDU) play key roles in global commerce.Read more
