Speaking on Business: Global Access
Global Access has created an impressive global logistics network to help retailers get packages to consumers in a competitive, cost-effective way.
This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.
When it comes to shipping, we expect packages to come fast, even overseas. Major retailers selling product online are expected to follow strict regulations for importing and exporting product, which can be a complex process. Global Access is simplifying this process and has infrastructure in place to collect international payments, and properly calculate duties and taxes at checkout while following all regulations. They’ve built an impressive global logistics network to help retailers get packages to consumers in a competitive, cost-effective way.
Global e-commerce is one of the fastest-growing segments of online commerce. According to Accentures, this market has been increasing at a rate of 13.5 percent annually and is projected to hit $3.4 trillion in sales by 2020. Chris Boyle entered this space years ago to ship goods to his expat friends living overseas and got inspired after living in Tokyo himself for 7 years. So, he started Global Access with a focus on handling the logistics of global ecommerce.
Global Access is headquartered in Sandy and after making several mergers and acquisitions, the team has grown from 50 to over 200 associates, and now has several offices in the U.S. and one in Japan. Global Access works with major retailers like Amazon, eBay and direct-sales companies, including several based in Utah.
