Northampton has been selected for a new 24/7 delivery solution from myHermes that will allow local businesses and residents to send parcels in a way that suits their individual lifestyle and precise requirements whatever the time of day. myHermes Parcel Locker will be located at Morrisons, Kettering Road and complements 5 myHermes Parcel Shops that have opened in the area over the past 12 months to provide added convenience, flexibility and choice to anyone wanting to send a parcel or return unwanted online purchases.
myHermes Parcel Locker is ideally suited for all SMEs, eBay Powersellers, Amazon Marketplace sellers, online and niche retailers that do not always have the time, availability or resources to send parcels during the day. It will also be perfect for anyone working late or unsocial hours that may not have the luxury of using alternative delivery options.
The new service will operate seamlessly alongside myHermes’ existing courier collection and ParcelShop delivery options, with customers selecting the nearest Parcel Locker via the myhermes.co.uk website and printing the appropriate label. Once an item has been dropped off at the Parcel Locker it will be delivered within two working days with full tracking available online.
Rob Edson CFO of Hermes commented: “We took the decision to launch myHermes Parcel Locker in key locations that would not only complement our existing myHermes ParcelShop network, but also support thriving online retail and Internet shopping communities. This will ensure we are able to provide the most convenient and flexible parcel delivery to our customers with the widest choice and unrivalled service.”
myHermes has initially launched more than 100 strategically located myHermes Parcel Locker sites, with plans to grow the network to around 250 by then end of the year. Each drop off point is situated at easy-to-reach and secure locations including local supermarkets, petrol stations and shopping centres.
