Parcelly partners with Eurosender
Parcelly is partnering with the price comparison website Eurosender to launch an international shipping solution. The collaboration will roll out in two stages. Phase 1 will utilize Parcelly locations as drop off points for items to be sent internationally. In phase 2, they will be offering shipping rates within the Parcelly app and enabling parcel pick-ups via their nationwide network of more than 1,500 Parcelly locations.
Phase 1 was launched on 12 September in London. For Eurosender users, parcels can now be dropped off at selected Parcelly locations and collected by a chosen courier (including GLS, Chronopost, PostNord, DHL and DPD) to be sent to their final delivery destination.
The Eurosender service currently offers parcel collection from a customer address between 9am and 6pm on a chosen pick-up day. However, it offers no guaranteed or specific time slot – s0 the new Parcelly service helps to overcome this issue.
Silvana Rodríguez A., Chief Operating Officer Eurosender commented: “We wanted to offer our customers more comprehensive and complete shipping services which could also include drop-off locations. Here is where our partnership with Parcelly comes into play. Customers will have more than 1,500 nationwide drop-off locations from where to leave or have their parcels delivered.”
Sebastian Steinhauser, CEO at Parcelly, added: “This new partnership is only the start of a new range of services Parcelly will be introducing in the coming months – all accessible via our mobile app. The partnership with Eurosender is a natural next step and well in line with our carrier agnostic network capabilities. While the initial phase of this partnership will facilitate the lives of Eurosender’s London based customers only, we are looking forward to rolling out this fantastic solution into our nationwide network by Q1 2018, while also launching both parcel drop-off and pick-up.”
