Last year, Parcelly launched in the UK with the mission to simplify your parcel collection by allowing you to pick-up all your online purchases how, when and where is most convenient for you. With now more than 200 locations in 5 cities across the UK - growing every day - we had a fantastic first year.
And we’re just getting started. To coincide with these milestones, Parcelly is introducing a whole set of new service features, is negotiating with numerous future business partners along the entire supply chain (which cannot be disclosed yet), and is continuing to grow and expand nationwide.
We’ve listened to the industry.
The countless conversations we’ve had with our existing and future business partners in our first year confirms that there is a clear need for convenient Click&Collect solutions. However, online retailer and logistic companies continue to struggle with either offering consumer convenient last-mile delivery solutions, or integrating the right solution into their existing platform. As we’ve worked with industry representatives over the last 12 months, it has become clear that choosing the right last-mile service or technology platform for their product or service are not their biggest struggles. The most pressing challenge for the E-commerce industry is finding ways to better connect with their customers. We’ve listened to these concerns and believe parcel collection needs to be time efficient, reliable, but most of all convenient. Parcelly makes it all that and more — user and community friendly, environmentally engaging and, above all, it puts you in full control. You decide how, when and where you receive your online purchases.
We’re just getting started.
By our second anniversary, our goal is to multiply the number of Parcelly locations and overall growth rate and see our network reach all corners of the country. Many thanks to our current network of Parcelly locations and business partners, including Convenience Stores, Newsagents, Dry Cleaners, Petrol Stations, Pharmacies, Gyms, Book shops, and all other retailers, who have introduced us to their local communities. We’ll continue to develop our brand awareness through partnerships like these.
Speaking of partnerships, today we’re proud to announce our new relationship with 2 petrol forecourt chains in the West Midlands and Wales. Much of our growth can be attributed to support from organisations like these local chains, which help us to accelerate our brand building and customer growth. We look forward to continue working with our business partners and to support local high streets, town centres and communities. Stay tuned for more news on that front.
Parcelly is the only fully smartphone based Click&Collect solution in the UK, compatible to any online retailer or carrier worldwide. We're also focused on giving back: turning online shoppers back into footfall for local high streets and reducing the environmental impacts of online shopping.
