Parcelly and Quiqup launch “mini-warehousing” service

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

Working with the delivery courier Quiqup and online retailer ‘No Ordinary Suit’, Parcelly has created what it describes as a “mini-warehousing service” using its parcel collection network across greater London.

The pilot service launched yesterday (11 September) and will see selected No Ordinary Suit flash sale items delivered to customers’ home addresses in under 60 minutes.

Helena Balls, Founder of No Ordinary Suit commented: “With Parcelly’s mini-warehousing solution I can now offer on demand deliveries for my London based customers in under 60 minutes – the ultimate customer convenience and truly designed for people with busy lifestyles. I also like the fact that I don’t even have to change my existing carrier solution, as Parcelly provides an on-demand third party to fulfil the orders. We’re truly excited to add this premium service to our range of delivery options.”

In a statement sent to Post&Parcel today, Parcelly said: “Using hyper-local mini-warehouses, retailers can store items at Parcelly’s locations and have them delivered to customers in under an hour, regardless of where their distribution centre or warehouse is located.

“The process is simple and blends into the existing fulfilment process: flash sale or promotional items are delivered from a decentralised warehouse into a set of strategically located Parcelly locations. After an order has been placed, the purchased item is collected by a Quiqup courier from a hyper-local Parcelly location and delivered to the customer’s address.”

Bassel El Koussa, CEO at Quiqup, said: “Our combined proposition leverages urban real estate effectively by using local shops across the city as mini-warehouses from which retailers’ goods are picked up by Quiqup’s flexible fleet of Quiqees and delivered to individual recipients. With 90% of consumers just a short bike ride away from our partnered locations, this solution helps retailers reach more consumers faster and cheaper.”

Sebastian Steinhauser, CEO at Parcelly added: “For retailers of any size, this is the first mini-warehousing solution that enables them to compete with the world’s largest e-commerce players in terms of on-demand delivery speed and customer experience. In addition to this, using Parcelly hyper-local mini warehouses makes this a more environmentally friendly and efficient way to achieve on-demand deliveries.”
