DPD teams up with Collect+ to expand parcel shop network
DPD has struck a deal with Paypoint in which over 3,000 Collect+ parcel shops will be added to the DPD Pickup network.
The new deal will expand the network to over 6,000 stores nationwide. DPD said the move will result in 97% of the UK population being within five miles of a DPD Pickup store.
Launched in 2015, DPD Pickup allows customers to divert parcels for collection from stores such as Sainsbury’s/Argos, Matalan, Go Outdoors, Blacks, Millets, Homebase as well as from Doddle Click and Collect points in Morrisons supermarkets.
Dwain McDonald, DPD chief executive, said: “Our aim is to have the most accessible parcel network in the UK, and to give our parcel recipients real convenience and even more control over how their parcel is delivered. Therefore, this is a key partnership for us and I’m really pleased to be working with PayPoint and growing the network in this way.
“Our technology works well with PayPoint to create a really smart partnership and I’m confident the experience for DPD recipients will be spot-on.”
Collect+ was founded in 2009 and PayPoint became the outright owner of the business in April 2020.
Ben Ford, retail services director at PayPoint, said: “We have seen an unprecedented boom in online shopping in recent months and our network gives parcel recipients more options for convenient and safe delivery and collection. It also gives our retailer partners another reason for shoppers to use their store, add value and increase sales.”
