Independent shops: tobacconists, newsagents, florists, grocers, petrol stations, etc. based in key location used by customers in their day-to-day life (neighbourhood shops, main roads, stations, underground stations, etc.).
All parcelshops are exclusive to the Pickup network and recruited using strict criteria such as customer reception, capacity to manage the activity and security.
In Europe, the network includes over 26,450 Pickup points in 19 countries (including Reunion Island).
In 2016, Pickup will expand to Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Ireland.
In India, the network includes 1,000 Pickup points.
Customers receive an email and/or text message when their parcel is available at the Pickup point. At the time of collection, the vendor systematically checks their identity document and customers must sign the PDA.
These shops receive daily from 10 to 40 parcels / day and keep them from 8 to 14 days (depending on the carrier).
