Carrefour to install 400 Pickup parcel lockers

French hypermarket chain Carrefour has entered into a partnership with La Poste owned parcel locker company Pickup. The hypermarket chain is to install more than 400 automatic parcel lockers across its shops from September.

Currently, Pickup works with carriers Colissimo and Chronopost that have clients with 10,000 e-commerce websites across Europe. Customers will be able to pick up and drop off parcels from the lockers that will be sited near the entrance of the Carrefour owned stores.

This comes after a successful pilot of the Saint Denis hypermarket in March this year. “We are delighted with this announcement – it’s evidence of just how well the services provided by Carrefour and Pickup can work together, benefiting consumers. We want to get closer to our customers through our regional coverage, providing them with services that make their everyday lives easier”, said Jean-Baptiste Prévoteau, head of In-Store services for Carrefour France.

“Providing people with local practical solutions that suit their lifestyles has been central to Pickup’s remit for the past 20 years. We are proud to be working with Carrefour once again, providing people with an e-commerce delivery experience that is tailored to their lifestyle in the neighbourhood. Picking up and dropping off parcels is now part of their everyday journeys”, says Olivier Titeux, Pickup’s Director of Development.
