How it all began.
Paazl was founded in 2009 by Bernard Schreiner and Ramon Keijsers. The idea for the business was born after they saw how complex it was for online brands and retailers to offer quality delivery, especially when shipping across borders. And so the thought arose: why not build a platform that makes delivery seamless and convenient for brands & retailers, carriers, and consumers alike?
So… How do you pronounce it? And what does it mean?
The name Paazl was born when the founders noticed an early team member (who had a particularly thick New Zealand accent), always pronounced the word “parcel” differently to everyone else. It sounded more like he was saying, “pahsil”. This play-on-pronunciation lead to the business being baptised as “Paazl”.
