Parcelly continues to push boundaries and reinvent the way people receive, send and return parcels - all through our app. Parcelly Agent is a natural extension of our sharing economy based model and will further drive customer control and convenience
— Sebastian Steinhauser, CEO & Founder Parcelly
For almost two years now, Parcelly has been on a mission to simplify parcel deliveries, enabling those with unused storage capacity to capitalise on this space and generate revenue by becoming a parcel collection point as one of our Parcelly locations. Before today, this service was limited to trusted business owners who make up our 600+ strong Parcelly network, which continues to grow by the day.
The launch of our new 'Parcelly Agent' model provides an extension to our current service proposition: Parcelly Agent is the parcel service in your neighbourhood or local community. While you are at work or unable to receive a parcel delivery, the friendly Parcelly Agent is at home to receive parcels on your behalf.
Designed primarily for rather rural areas with no local parcel collection points, Parcelly Agent is aimed at trusted neighbours who are already accepting parcels on a regular basis or would like to start supporting their local community, making missed deliveries a thing of the past. By doing so, individuals get paid for each parcel they handle and benefit from full flexibility and control regarding the size, weight and number of parcels they wish to receive and the time they receive them.
Our green, paperless smartphone-based app solution reinvents the old-fashioned method of visiting your local depot to collect parcels, and has a strong social and environmental impact. By adding Parcelly Agents to our already vast network of locations, customers as well as delivery drivers will have even less distance to travel in order to collect or respectively deliver parcels, which in turn reduces road traffic and minimises the environmental impact of parcel deliveries.
But this is simply the first step of our new Parcelly Agent model. As we continue to grow our location network and services across the UK and beyond, more and more exciting features are set to be released. These will not only further improve customer experience and delivery efficiency, but also drive business opportunities for both Parcelly Locations and Parcelly Agents, leading to additional control, convenience and flexibility for customers and all stakeholders along the entire supply chain.
Introducing 'the biggest thing to happen to parcels since cardboard', here is how it works:
- Sign up as Parcelly agent (we will complete a due diligence check upfront)
- Tell us your business hours (you control the number, size and collection hours all from your smartphone and set your preferences via our Parcelly Agent app interface)
- Receive parcels on your terms and earn extra cash for each parcel handled (your neighbour or friend's parcels will be delivered to your hands and collected when you're both free). Easy!
