LinkedIn +

Collect+, part of the PayPoint Group, has partnered with OOHPod to enable Yodel Click & Collect customers in Northern Ireland to have their parcels delivered to secure lockers.

The partnership will be piloted for six months running through October 2023, with parcel lockers in nine locations, including Lidl stores in Castlereagh, Newtownards, Shore Road Belfast and Lisburn. They will provide 24/7 contactless access for customers to pick up online deliveries at their convenience and will be available as a click-and-collect option to select via retailers’ store locators. To choose delivery to the OOHPods, customers need simply to select the option when checking out online. 

Nick Williams, director of parcel services at PayPoint, said, Our partnership with OOHPod is evidence of our commitment to providing consumers across Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK with an ever-increasing range of locations and options to meet their parcel delivery needs.”

John Tuohy, CEO at OOHPod, commented, “We are so excited by this important milestone in the progress of OOHPod in the UK and Ireland. This trial in Northern Ireland allows us to further refine our OOH service offering in agnostic self-service parcel lockers. It’s fantastic that we are working with such prestigious partners as Yodel, a leading UK parcel carrier and their longstanding OOH PUDO partner PayPoint Collect+. All three companies are working closely together to deliver a successful trial that will lead to further expansion of our cooperation across the UK.”

Liam Rogan, out-of-home director at Yodel, commented, “We are pleased to announce this trial of parcel lockers, which is an exciting step for us as we look to grow our out-of-home offering. In recent years we have seen consumers demanding more convenient parcel deliveries. Our existing relationship with PayPoint provides customers with access to thousands of conveniently located stores across the UK. Their partnership with OOHPod provides Yodel with access to a safe place for customers to collect at a time that suits them. The trial also enables us to provide a more sustainable service. By delivering parcels to a single location in an area, we can reduce total mileage across our network as we look to achieve carbon neutrality by 2035.”
