Yodel launches consumer-to-consumer service

UK parcel carrier Yodel has announced the launch of its new consumer-to-consumer service.

Customers will be able to ship parcels up to 60x50x50cm and weighing up to 10kg.

Once a customer has booked a delivery online at www.yodeldirect.co.uk, they will be presented with a label to print or a QR code which will allow them to print a label in store.

Yodel Direct customers will have access to two services. The store-to-store service, will mean customers can drop off their parcel at their nearest Yodel Direct store for their recipient to collect at theirs.

Consumers will also be able to use the store-to-door service which will allow them to drop off their package at their nearest Yodel Direct store and will be directly delivered to their recipient’s address.

As soon as their package has been picked up, customers can live-track their orders via Yodel Direct’s website and receive up-to-date notifications on their parcel’s journey.

“We are thrilled to be able to open our services up to consumers through Yodel Direct, which will offer an easy and efficient way to ship and deliver parcels in a few simple steps,” said chief executive of Yodel, Mike Hancox. “We’re industry leaders in the parcel market and identified an opportunity to expand our offering and extend our trusted services to a new audience.”

Hancox added: “With our home delivery expertise, extensive network of couriers and skills in handling specialist parcels, customers are safe in the knowledge that their parcels are in good hands. We will continue delivering a high-quality experience to our customers across the country.”
