SINGAPORE, July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- China Post Group, China's state-owned postal service provider, and Lazada Group, the leading online shopping and selling destination in Southeast Asia, have signed a strategic agreement to enhance cross-border logistics solutions for Chinese sellers on the Lazada platform.

The areas of collaboration include enhancing current delivery options for merchants selling small and light items, and developing financial solutions such as micro-credit loans and online payment options for logistics fees. Both organizations have also expressed interest to collaborate with cross-border warehousing solutions, logistics-related education and training, and seller on-boarding in the longer term.

We are pleased to partner with China Post which, with its strong postal network in Southeast Asia and expertise in postal services, will be a vital partner as Lazada attracts more brands and merchants to bring a wider product assortment to consumers in the region," said Maximilian Bittner, CEO of Lazada Group.
