UK carrier-agnostic tech platform Parcelly has announced that it has extended its partnership with DHL Express.
Parcelly has been operating a pickup/drop-off (PUDO) network since 2014 in the UK and now has more than 2000 locations. The company is now focusing on the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region. Under the deal with DHL Express it is to supply delivery points for customer collections and returns in the region.
The Parcelly PUDO network is to help DHL Express with efficiency, and should reduce delivery vehicle mileage and allow for a smaller carbon footprint. The carrier will have full access to the Parcelly platform’s features that will include label-less e-commerce returns and cash on delivery options. The partnership reinforces Parcelly’s position as a market leading tech solution for PUDO points.
Sebastian Steinhauser, CEO and Founder, Parcelly said: “We’re delighted to extend our partnership with DHL Express and to help establish the concept of Pick-up and Drop-off locations (PUDOs) as an alternative to home delivery in the Middle East. Combining our market-leading PUDO technology platform with the world’s leading international express service provider, this partnership is yet another example of how DHL continues to drive premium service options in the highly competitive retail space by challenging the status quo. By establishing an ever-growing network of local PUDO locations, for both collections and returns, this solution will provide choice, convenience and control to consumers in the region, while also reducing the environmental and operational impact of failed deliveries.”
