Suppliers

The Post Office and DPD have announced their new click and collect partnership, which is set to be rolled out next week.  

The service will initially be available at 250 Post Office sites across the UK before expanding to 1500 branches in time for Christmas.  

Online customers will have the option to choose the Post Office as the collection point for their order, with DPD delivering the parcels to the location, where it will be processed by the Postmaster. 

The partnership aims to take advantage of the click-and-collect market which has seen rapid growth by 14 per cent pre-pandemic.

“I’m delighted that through our partnership with DPD, customers can select their local Post Office to collect their parcels and know that they are often open longer hours, staffed by a knowledgeable Postmaster and located moments from where they live”, Post Office chief executive Nick Read said.  

DPD chief executive Elaine Kerr added: “This is a significant, long-term partnership between two brand leaders in the parcel industry and comes at a time when the convenience of online shopping and delivery is more valued than ever.  

“Our aim is always to get parcels delivered safely on time and provide recipients with as much choice as possible. 

“This partnership enables us to offer more options at the point of purchase, while the parcel is in-flight and on those occasions when we can’t leave a parcel safely.”
