MBE Worldwide acquires World Options

MBE Worldwide acquires World Options

The acquisition represents another relevant step in MBE’s growth, adding a committed network of sales-oriented entrepreneurs and strengthening the company’s position as a global commerce platform

MBE Worldwide has acquired majority ownership of World Options, a UK-based provider of shipping, delivery and logistics services with more than 120 franchisees and agents across the UK, USA, Australia, the Netherlands and Belgium.

“World Options is an excellent strategic addition for MBE because of its entrepreneur-driven, people-centric, customer-first business model, which perfectly fits with MBE business and culture,” said Paolo Fiorelli, chairman and CEO of MBE. “We welcome World Options to the MBE family and we look forward to working together to continue strengthening our integrated platform – both physical and digital – to support our customers’ growth.”

MBE Worldwide is a commerce-enablement platform providing e-commerce, fulfilment, shipping, marketing and print solutions to SMBs and consumers. In 2021, MBE served over 1 million business customers worldwide, generating €1.01bn of system-wide sales through its 2,900-plus service centres in 53 countries and €24bn of gross merchandise value traded through its PrestaShop e-commerce solutions.

World Options is a tech-enabled shipping service provider, serving over 10,000 SMBs with all their shipping needs, from small parcels to large freight, both domestically and internationally. The company operates through a successful network of franchisees and agents throughout the UK, US, Australia, the Netherlands and Belgium.

The acquisition represents another relevant step in MBE’s growth, adding a committed network of sales-oriented entrepreneurs and strengthening the company’s position as a global commerce platform for businesses.

“This is an exciting development for World Options,” said Stewart Butler, CEO and founder of World Options. “Combining forces with MBE creates unique opportunities to grow our business in new ways to benefit our franchisees and our loyal customers with colleagues similarly steeped in managing a franchise-based network of entrepreneurs.”
