Royal Mail and Post Office get in on Click & Collect

30 May 2013

Royal Mail, working with the Post Office, will launch later this year the UK’s largest ‘click and collect’ network providing parcel delivery options for online retailers and their customers.

Post Office has the largest retail network in the UK and its branches are ideal locations to provide convenient, secure parcel collection facilities. 99 per cent of the population lives within three miles of a Post Office branch. Around 10,500 Post Office branches will be taking part in the initiative.

Royal Mail is committed to providing a range of options to enhance delivery convenience and choice for online shoppers. Delivery to home, or to a neighbour for safekeeping, remains the preference for the vast majority of customers and we expect this to continue to be the case. For others, click and collect from a local Post Office branch will provide an alternative.

The Post Office is modernising its network. More and more of its branches are opening for longer and more than 4,000 will offer access to items ordered through click and collect outside the usual Post Office opening hours.
