Established in 2014, Parcelly is a Pick-Up and Drop-Off (PUDO) solution, integrating retailers and carriers across all industries and of all sizes to a highly scalable and internationally growing platform of ‘logistics hubs’.
Parcelly operates a smartphone app which allows local businesses to activate underutilised storage space for ecommerce. Parcelly’s technology platform is powering the new reality of retail, bridging the gap between the online and offline worlds by converting physical space into either ecommerce storage or distribution hubs. The Parcelly solution is asset light, without the need for purpose-built infrastructure. Parcelly enables a broad range of fully customisable services, addressing consumers’ increasingly demanding delivery expectations, and driving customer satisfaction at the most expensive end of the supply chain: the final mile.
In collaboration with wholesale and symbol groups, including Booker Group (Tesco), Costcutter and Budgens, Parcelly’s network of over 3000 PUDO locations in more than 150 cities across the UK and US has a proven track record, processing millions of transactions.
Demonstrating the keen interest in the PUDO sector, Parcelly have now attracted a funding round of $6.7 million led by Scania Growth Capital. The funding will enable Parcelly’s strategic expansion in the U.S. and continental Europe and further accelerate its platform development.
Parcelly makes effective use of available space to offer the broad range of services online retailers and carriers need to meet consumer expectations, efficiency and sustainability goals.
