JCREW Goes Global, with Shipping

Five years after I started complaining the retailers in the US are finally wising up and shipping to Europe -- the latest being J.Crew.  According to the shipping info on the website the folks at DHL won the logistics outsourcing business.  While I have no insight into the size of the contract, DHL is offering flat fee shipping of only 11.95 EUR in 4-8 business days to most of the European Union countries. Quite a deal.

With my own self interests in play I am glad they are expanding to the European Union.  I'd love to hear what took them so long.  I'll be testing it out soon enough.  Let's just hope it doesn't get stuck in customs or its back to the drawing board.
