The E-Cigarette and Vaping Market was valued at US$10.02 billion as of 2020 and is projected to grow to US$73.96 billion.
TORONTO — Element Vape wants its customers to know that they can select to have their packages shipped to a PUDO counter near them, usually just minutes away in the nearest convenience store. There is a PUDO counter in 80 per cent of all metropolitan areas the company also stated.
Element Vape has partnered with PUDO Inc. The company said that PUDO’s technology platform and network of stores serve to provide Element Vape’s customers with various pick up locations. It will also allow for compliance with new government legislation.
According to the company, many major carrier services were unable to meet the ‘age and identity verification’ and other requirements of the new legislation.
The company stated that PUDOpoints performs face-to-face age and identity verification, which solves a major problem for vape retailers, regulators, customers, and the courier companies.
Due to the regulatory amendments made to the PACT Act that treats vapour products similar to tobacco, shipping options have been severely disrupted, the company also stated. Element Vape has received approvals from USPS to ship to a variety of business locations throughout the U.S., offering another solution to deliver vaping products to its adult customers.
The E-Cigarette and Vaping Market was valued at US$10.02 billion as of 2020 and is projected to grow to US$73.96 billion. That’s a 27.67 per cent compounded annual growth rate from 2021 to 2028.
“Most vape customers are fearing restricted supply, increased shipping costs and added complexity and inconvenience in getting their orders. This cooperative integration increases access for adult customers and addresses logistical challenges with convenient local pick-up solutions. More importantly, this allows us to continue serving the vaping community.” said Tommy Sy, CEO of Element Vape in a statement.
