Update On :28 October 2014
"MetaPack today announced the acquisition of ABOL Software, an American provider of multi-carrier shipping software. With the acquisition MetaPackâ€™s global delivery services offering gets expanded and opens up a new market for customers who want to drive cross-border sales and improve their international delivery experience.
Founded in 1999, MetaPack has been growing considerably as it also acquired European shipping solutions provider XLogics last year, appointed a new COO as a result of its growing customer base and opened offices in Germany and France.
Their latest act is the acquisition of ABOL Software, which has strong relationships with big carriers like DHL, FedEx, UPS and USPS. MetaPack wants to leverage ABOLâ€™s strengths in the US market to help European retailers drive overseas sales by providing more convenience, transparency and choice to their customers.
â€œThe latest acquisition is key for our international growth and demonstrates our commitment to providing a first-class service to our customersâ€, says MetaPackâ€™s CEO and founder Patrick Wall. â€œThe move will enable us to offer more competitive cross-border delivery services to retailers, while allowing them to venture into new markets and drive business growth.â€"
