Channel Island based Jersey Post Group has invested in specialist Latin American parcel and logistics provider APG International.
Florida based APG International was established in 2018 when Aprisa Express and Pakya merged. The new company provides parcel and logistics services in wholesale and retail into the Americas.
This is a first step for Jersey Post into Latin America as it grows its business significantly beyond the constraints of the tiny market it immediately serves.
Tim Brown, Chief Executive of Jersey Post said: “Our international strategy is to ensure long-term revenue growth and stability for Jersey Post, by providing a complete global solution. This solution has to work seamlessly for those customers based overseas, but it must also work hard for those based locally so that we can facilitate expansion opportunities from Jersey to markets in locations where we now have global partners.
“The investment in APG is really exciting; not only does it compliment our global network, but it puts us, and our customers, in an excellent position to be able to leverage the rapidly expanding LATAM markets through a partner with significant expertise in this area.”
Through a collaboration of partners, APG International offers e-commerce solutions, (fulfilment and cross-border services), international mail (e.g. publications, correspondence, marketing etc.), parcels (standard, express, economy services.), GDE services, freight forwarding (air, ocean and land) and warehousing solutions.
APG CEO’s Leslie Foxhoven and Mimi Ramos said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Jersey Post. They have built a fantastic parcel and logistics network across the globe which really supports and compliments our existing LATAM service ofering. Being part of this network represents a prime opportunity for both us, but also for our customers, to expand outside of the LATAM region and maximise new markets.”
