The conference offers a forum to discuss new strategies, emerging technologies and best practice from industry leaders at the forefront of direct commerce.
Competing against a number of high-quality entries in the innovation category, MHI’s advanced eCommerce delivery routing app impressed the judging panel, who were unanimous in selecting the Bristol-based firm as Direct Commerce Innovator 2018.
MHI’s entry for ‘Best Technological Tools’ focused on the cutting edge Intelligent Routing Information System (IRIS), which, together with its supporting E-Commerce Route Optimising System (E-CROS) makes cross-border trading more accessible to online retailers, big or small.
Developed in-house, this specialist software app has been continually evolved since its inception to provide exporters with a choice of postal services and delivery options, available at exclusive wholesale rates.
