Pargo announces 200th parcel point
South Africa-based Pargo has informed Post&Parcel that it launched its 200th Pargo parcel point this week. As previously reported, Pargo launched its network in December with 14 parcel points in the Western Cape – and it has since expanded rapidly.
Pargo is now operating throughout the country with a network set up together with Freshstop at Caltex, Waltons, Vee’s Video, OK Grocer, 7Eleven, Mr Video, Alpha Pharmacies and local, privately owned stores.
“We have received positive feedback from our partners and their customers. Pargo has a 100% successful delivery rate on the first attempt,” Pargo told Post&Parcel today (3 July). “When a parcel is delivered customers immediately receive a collection notification. 33% of collections happen after business hours and within 2 days on average. This is the first ever that South African customers are able to collect when it suits them best and are not limited to traditional office hours.”
The parcel points can be used for both collections and returns.
