For its Argos customers, major two-person delivery company ArrowXL is trialling an extension to its established Highland Service that offers the same delivery service and costs to customers in the Scottish Highlands and Islands as the rest of the UK – including Shetland and the Orkneys. At the same time customers will also receive updates from the ArrowXL network of local service providers as to their delivery timings.
Laurence Garnett, Head of Supply Chain and Logistics Strategy at Sainsbury’s said: “Argos is committed to delivering convenience and flexibility for customers alongside outstanding choice and value. It’s our mission to make their lives easier and this trial will mean that whether shoppers are in Shetland or the Western Isles, they can choose from around 20,000 products and get them delivered quickly and conveniently. We’ll be listening closely to customer and colleague feedback over the next few months.”
Charlie Shiels, CEO at ArrowXL, said: “We are working closely with Argos to promote service equality across the UK and give choice and certainty to 41,000 additional homes in the Scottish Islands.”
