Arvarto sees optical opportunity in France

[ August 22, 2013   //   ]

Arvato Transport is offering a new network for in-night deliveries for the optical sector in France. An in-night network is being set up in conjunction with a leading French shipping company with a launch date of 1 September. Avarto’s director of transport management, Patrick Bos, comments: “On the French market, there is currently only one in-night service provider catering to the needs of opticians. This makes this new network a real alternative and an important component of our individual shipping solutions for the optical sector. Opticians with a safe box will be able to receive their deliveries at night and contact lenses, for example, that are ordered on a given day will arrive with the customer the next morning between 5 and 9am.

An Avarto spokesman said the service would be available to companies delivering into France from another country, including the UK and, moreover, if there are enough interested companies in UK, in night deliveries could also be implemented in this country.
