Reminiscing about another fabulous year for Parcelly, we could not help but notice the huge steps we have taken and how far we have come in the past 12 months and how thrilled we are about our pipeline for 2018!
2017 was definitely the year of #parcellove, not only within our fantastic team, but also in view of extending our platform capabilities and services, and strong environmental and social responsibility credentials: we not only introduced multiple industry first innovations, but also won the high-profile BITC award for 'Responsible Business in the Digital Age'.
Our parcel collection network doubled compared to last year and we now count more than 1500+ Parcelly locations in more than 50 cities across the UK - growing every day through a broad list of retail and convenience partnerships.
See our selection of key highlights in 2017 below #HappyReading
1) WE EXTENDED OUR TECHNOLOGY PLATFORM
As you know we love to stay at the forefront of innovation and keep busy working on not only making our consumer app as smooth as possible, but also to push the boundaries and continue to expand our technology platform as a wider omnichannel solution. Solving first- or last-mile delivery challenges for both, online retailers and logistics companies, and catering to increasing customer demands.
2) WE FORMED EXCITING NEW PARTNERSHIPS
Not only did we extend collaborations with longstanding retail partners like the Costcutter Supermarkets and the Booker Group, but we diversified our portfolio of Parcelly locations further across London and nationwide to be exactly where our Parcelly users want us to be.
3) WE CONTINUED TO MAKE A NAME FOR US ABROAD
Spreading our wings further, Parcelly continues to make steps towards the planned internationalisation in 2018. Our brand keeps turning into a household name far and beyond with our team exhibiting at more than 15 events and trade shows, with our CEO Sebastian being a sought after speaker at international conferences, sharing thought leadership in regards to first-and last mile innovation, urban delivery challenges and green logistics.
4) WE SNATCHED MORE NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL AWARDS
Parcelly kept right on the winning streak, as we were awarded with more and more prestigious awards than ever, culminating in winning DHL's Global Innovation award only last month.
5) WE KEPT SPREADING THE PARCELLOVE
Our marketing machine kept spinning, resulting in the largest PR coverage in the UK ever achieved (features in the Financial Times, Sky News, and many more). We also stuck heads together with our friends at CupTheMarket to make this year's Christmas extra special and keep you warm on the go! Our beautiful red coffee cups were popping up in your favourite independent coffee shops all across town...
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST...
We celebrated our already 3rd anniversary on December 8th! A very special thanks to all our loyal customers who keep us on our toes to make Parcelly's click&collect solution the most innovative logistics tech platform in the market.
The entire Parcelly team is excited about what is to come and wishes you a fantastic start to the New Year 2018: Here's to another year of last- and first-mile innovation!
