Parcelforce picks Business Direct for drop-box service

Parcelforce has chosen Business Direct for the supply of the ParcelXchange of in-night drop box facility to Parcelforce clients.
Parcelforce identified a number of B2B customers whose delivery requirements have become more diverse over recent years and signed a three year deal for Business Direct’s ParcelXchange network of more than 4,200 drop-boxes.
Nick Landon, head of UK marketing and commercial strategy for Parcelforce Worldwide said: “This deal will allow sectors such as high tech, utilities and medical industries, or any field-based technician or engineering industries to have their deliveries made to any of Business Direct’s ParcelXchanges and PUDO’s located throughout the UK.
“The addition of the well established ParcelXchange network facility gives Parcelforce Worldwide greater competitive advantage, by extending our supply chain capability in the pre-8am secure field delivery and collection point market.”
