Correos, the national postal service of Spain, has teamed up with AliExpress and Cainiao Network, to support Spanish small-and medium-sized enterprises grow into new global markets.

As part of a memorandum of understanding signed last Wednesday, Correos will work with Alibaba’s Cainiao Smart Logistics Network to better facilitate goods shipped between China and Spain, while international retail marketplace AliExpress will support Spanish small- and medium-sized enterprises looking to sell to other markets in Europe and Latin America, ultimately helping them grow globally.

Correos said it would partner with Cainiao on designing new logistics strategies to speed up deliveries to Spain, as well as explore new ways to manage parcels in areas such as shipment classification, customs clearance, transport and last-mile delivery.

“AliExpress consumers will benefit from an improved shopping experience, especially given the speedy delivery empowered by Cainiao,” Correos said in a release.

Increasingly, Spanish SMEs are using the platform, as well, to reach consumers elsewhere on the Continent, as AliExpress connects consumers to merchants in 220 countries and regions in addition to China.
