Someone chose a good running mate for their European campaign.
Seattle online mail service Earth Class Mail today announced that it’s partnering with Swiss Post.
From the release:
“During the initial pilot phase Swiss Post will provide the service to corporations, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, small businesses, and individual customers from all over the world who seek mail service or addresses in Switzerland, France, Germany, Italy, and Austria. After the pilot, Swiss Post expects to roll out online postal mail in all countries in which Swiss Post International has a presence, including Belgium, Denmark, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, The Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, and the U.S.”
Earth Class Mail Chief Executive Ron Wiener said in the release that the company is “thrilled to be working with Swiss Post as the first national postal operator to offer Earth Class Mail, not only in its home country but in the many other countries in which Swiss Post’s distinguished brand for precision, security, and reliability is already so well-known.”
Thrilled is probably an understatement.
Earth Class is also riding high from a second round of funding last week — $5.1 million, in addition to its previous $13.3 million round — that will help increase staff and add processing capabilities in Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Kansas City and Washington, D.C.
