The Jersey Post Group has announced today that it has added to its global network with an investment in a specialist Latin American parcel and logistics partner.
This investment extends Jersey Post’s network into LATAM countries providing its existing network partners with services into these areas but also providing Jersey Post with opportunities to expand in the Americas.
Based in Florida, APG International, established by the 2018 merger between Aprisa Express and Pakya, provides a combination of parcel and logistics services focused on the Americas region and operates in both the wholesale and the retail market. 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.
This investment is the latest in Jersey Post’s international strategy to exploit opportunities outside the finite local market. In 2016 Jersey Post purchased Fraser Freight, a UK based European logistics provider located in Portsmouth and HICS, a customs clearance agent located at Heathrow. Since 2017, Jersey Post has continued to implement its strategy by investing in:
Tim Brown, Chief Executive at Jersey Post stated, “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.”
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.”
