PFC UK parcel delivery partner Yodel has launched a C2C parcel Direct delivery service called Yodel Direct, targeting small businesses that have sprung up during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Due to the epidemic prevention and control, people are spending more time at home, and their time at home is gradually shifting from personal interests to business development. Start-ups will benefit from the new Yodel Direct service, which will be able to ship company products across the country.
Despite a year of record growth in e-commerce, the volume of packages handled by Yodel's system remained high. In 2020, the company handled 190 million packages, up 30% from the previous year. With Yodel Direct's new service, customers can ship packages in sizes of 60x50x50cm and weighing up to 10kg. By booking a delivery time online, customers can print the label at home or get a QR code to print the label at a store.
According to PFC, as part of Yodel Direct, customers will initially be able to use two services: one is the "store to store" service, where the customer can deliver the package to the nearest Yodel Direct store and the recipient can pick it up at a Yodel Direct store near him or her; The second is a "store-to-door" service, where packages will be delivered directly from the nearest Yodel Direct store to the addressee. Once a package is collected, the sender can track the order in real time through the Yodel Direct website and receive the latest notifications about the delivery of the package.
Yodel CEO Mike Hancox said he is excited to be able to offer the service to consumers through Yodel Direct in just a few simple steps
