FedEx has teamed-up with PayPoint and joined the Collect+ network, giving its customers drop-off and pickup services at more than 2,300 Collect+ stores across the UK.
As the UK’s largest independent store-based delivery and returns service, 77% of urban residents currently live within one mile of Collect+ locations, while 80% of rural residents live within five miles.
“Collect+ is the perfect retailer to help us meet the growing need for a convenient, secure pickup option in a variety of UK locations,” said Jon Stockton, Vice President, Ground Operations UK, FedEx Express. “We understand customers may not always want packages delivered to their home or office, but they do want secure, alternate delivery options, and we’re on a mission to make that happen. We are proud to work with Collect+ to make our customers’ lives easier. Collect+ also offers environmental benefits through increased fuel efficiencies for our ground fleet from smarter routes.”
Nick Wiles, Executive Chairman of PayPoint, added: “We’re delighted to be working with FedEx Express and the feedback from retailers and customers since launch has been excellent. This forms part of our partnership announcement earlier this year and is another example of our drive to become the UK’s foremost provider of click and collect services.”
