It also confirmed it is looking at opportunities in China, where it is set to partner with a local operator. ASOS has said that contribution from the market is only likely to make up around 7.0%.
ASOS offers delivery to 240 international destinations, with all (bar the Marshall Islands) receiving standard deliveries which are free, and selected destinations able to receive express deliveries. For standard deliveries, orders arrive after a minimum of 6 days for destinations such as Sweden, while longer distance deliveries arrive in 15 days.
ASOS' customer care team can view real-time tracking information for parcels and the software flags up to the team if something is likely to delay the order. Prior to using MetaPack, ASOS was reliant on its carriers systems to track orders which was inefficient and resulted in a more reactive approach to customer queries.
