Abris-backed Alsendo invests in Czech platform Zaslat

Abris Capital Partners (Abris), an ESG transformation specialist private equity investor, has supported Alsendo, a Central European technology shipping solutions business, in acquiring a majority stake in Zaslat, a technology-enabled parcel delivery platform focused on consumers and corporate clients in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

The acquisition supports Alsendo’s international expansion and giving the business an immediate footprint in the Czech and Slovak markets, with the potential for further expansion across Central Europe. Additionally, Zaslat’s shipping system can be replicated across other Central European markets and further afield, as demonstrated by a recent pilot in South Africa. 

Central European investor Abris invested in Alsendo (previously apaczka), an e-commerce shipping solutions business, in 2020. It has since partnered with the firm, which offers SaaS and reselling delivery solutions for SMEs and individual consumers, to expand organically and through acquisition as it seeks to build the leading technology-driven provider of shipping services in Central Europe. The acquisition of Zaslat follows 2021’s add-on of Sendit, a parcel delivery platform for individual customers in Poland, as well as a number of smaller tuck-in acquisitions.
