ipostparcels has unveiled a depot-to-depot service allowing customers to drop a parcel at their local depot, and have the recipient collect it from one that suits them the following day.
All 55 ipostparcel depots located throughout the UK will be involved, with prices starting at £1.99.
The fully operational service can be accessed via ipostparcels.com, where customers can choose their local depot, select the date for the drop off and then opt for the ‘Depot to Depot’ service. The initiative is inclusive of small to XXL parcels, and the recipient will receive a notification once the parcel has been shipped, advising them of the chosen destination depot and the date the parcel will be available for collection.
Ros Hunt, Marketing Director of ipostparcels, said: “This is an extension of our ‘Drop at Depot’ initiative which is used regularly by a third of our customers. Following a customer feedback session, we decided to offer a more comprehensive ‘Depot to Depot’ service and expand upon the savings that our customers can achieve.” She continued: “We have already established drop off points that our customers are able to utilise, so the foundations were already in place.”
