ONLINE SHOPPING HOW IT SHOULD BE
Parcelly is the UK’s first and most advanced network of carrier and retailer agnostic Pick-up and Drop-off locations. Our core belief is that receiving, returning, and sending parcels should be convenient, efficient, simple, and above all Sustainable.
Launched in 2014, we’re on a mission to transform first- and last-mile delivery through innovative technology solutions. We enable consumers to have full control over their online orders, resolve the issue of failed deliveries and reduce the environmental impact associated with failed delivery attempts and traffic congestion. We also help stakeholders along the entire supply chain to streamline fulfillment processes, speed up delivery cycles, facilitate reverse logistics and ultimately improve customer experience and satisfaction.
With a dedicated team across 3 offices in London, Hamburg, and Frankfurt today, Parcelly converts redundant space in local shops and private households into carrier and retailer agnostic parcel storage. Our nationwide on-demand network of Parcelly business partners is dynamically managed and empowered through smart technology that allows anyone, anywhere, and at any time to access, manage and monetise on redundant space – for items as small as keys or as large as a pallet. Parcelly’s service is available to consumers through a mobile app and integrated with an ever-growing list of exciting retail and logistics brands.
Parcelly is all about people. Our growing team of parcel enthusiasts strives to be the best through hard work, dedication, and team spirit, with a commitment to transform an entire industry through service quality, innovative technology, and thought leadership.
