Parcel shop collection point network in the UK
Parcelly announce EU partnership
Parcelly has announced a new partnership with Eurosender, the price comparison website for parcel shipping across Europe. The collaboration will roll out in 2 stages, with phase 1 utilising Parcelly locations in the UK as drop off points for items to be sent internationally, and phase 2 offering shipping rates within the Parcelly app and enabling parcel pick-ups via their nationwide network of more than 1,500 Parcelly locations.
Silvana Rodríguez is the Chief Operating Officer at Eurosender: “We wanted to offer our customers more comprehensive and complete shipping services which could also include drop-off locations. Here is where our partnership with Parcelly comes into play. Customers will have more than 1,500 nationwide drop-off locations from where to leave or have their parcels delivered. We understand that time is money. Thus, we are positive that our customers will find this upgrade in the service beneficial because it will allow them to use their time more efficiently.”
Sebastian Steinhauser, CEO at Parcelly says: “We take pride in pushing boundaries and continue our innovation to further improve Parcelly’s service proposition. This new partnership is only the start of a new range of services Parcelly will be introducing in the coming months – all accessible via our mobile app. The partnership with Eurosender is a natural next step and well in line with our carrier agnostic network capabilities. While the initial phase of this partnership will facilitate the lives of Eurosender’s London based customers only, we are looking forward to rolling out this fantastic solution into our nationwide network by Q1 2018, while also launching both parcel drop-off and pick-up.”
It will be interesting to understand how widely Parcelly is utilised and the extent to which this new developmet will have a material impact on UK marketplace sellers. Are you a user?
