TORONTO, Oct. 29, 2015 /CNW/ - PUDO Inc., ("PUDO" or "the Company") (CSE: PDO), North America's first customizable shipment pick-up and drop-off service, today announced a new strategic partnership with TNT Express Canada to become the preferred international carrier, effective December 1, 2015.

PUDO, which launched across North America in September, allows customers to tailor their shipment pick-up and drop-off locations to fit their busy schedules. This deal with TNT creates additional convenience and an average savings of 25% or more on international shipping for PUDO members using "PUDO Point" locations throughout the company's rapidly growing network.

"The process with TNT is really easy for users," said Frank Coccia, Chief Executive Officer. "PUDO members just log in through the PUDO site, complete the online form with payment info, print off their waybill, attach to the shipment and drop it off at their nearest PUDO Point location to save 25% or more to some destinations, on all international shipping."

"We are really excited about the PUDO business model and believe that it represents an important step forward in our industry.  Our partnership with PUDO makes international shipping not only less expensive, but also more convenient," said George Almeida, General Manager TNT Express Canada. 

PUDO currently has over 2,200 PUDO Point dealer locations across Canada underway and more than 3,000 locations in the United States signed up to become operational in 2015 and 2016. For these local PUDO Point locations, PUDO provides opportunities for additional foot traffic and the potential for repeat customer business.  PUDO has also created affiliate agreements with some of North America's most well-known retailers, including Amazon, eBay, Hudson's Bay, and Walmart.
