MIAMI and LONDON, April 26, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SkyShop Logistics, Inc. (OTCBB:SKPN) has announced the signing of a contract with American Express (NYSE:AMP) Global Network Services (GNS) to provide online cross-border shopping solutions to the Cardmembers of GNS' card-issuing partners throughout Europe and Latin America. GlobalShop, which is a brand managed by SkyShop Logistics and created exclusively for these American Express Cardmembers, will be offered in select European and Latin American markets to facilitate online shopping.
GlobalShop provides a U.S. Address to which retailers can mail purchased items and provide international transport, customs clearance and delivery to the Cardmembers' homes. It not only provides shopping logistics but also shopping assistance via its personal shopper and concierge services in addition to many online shopping offers.
In addition to the U.S. address, GlobalShop will also have a London address allowing Cardmembers to not only shop from U.S. merchants but from European merchants as well. The London address will be launched later this month.
