Yodel renews Scottish final mile deal with Menzies

UK delivery company Yodel and Scottish delivery firm Menzies Distribution have renewed their partnership for five more years, committing to deliver more than 1.7 million parcels a year to addresses in Scotland.

The relationship between Yodel and Menzies has been going for two years, enabling Yodel to reach more customers in Scotland. The number of deliveries has grown throughout the partnership and both Yodel and Menzies are confident that this is set to continue to grow.

Under the deal, Yodel receives a parcel from a retailer and sends it to one of three hubs and then transfers it to the Menzies network for final mile delivery.

Stephen Mooney, Parcels Operations Director at Menzies, said: “We’re very proud to be renewing our partnership with Yodel, allowing us to continue delivering to a potential 5.5 million customers across Scotland. Our expertise lies in delivering across challenging geographies, and our network reaches every postcode in the Highlands and Islands as well as the rest of Scotland.”

Rick Southwood, Director of Operational Services at Yodel, said: “Menzies has been an excellent partner for Yodel so far, thanks to its unrivalled experience in delivery and collection services across the whole of Scotland. Both companies share a passion for putting people first and providing outstanding customer service. Menzies has unrivalled capability in delivering to difficult-to-reach places, and their growth and investment strategy is also aligned to our brand values, which made it an easy decision for us to renew the partnership. The relationship has gone from strength to strength, and we’re looking forward to seeing it continue to develop in the next few years.”
