“We have seen a big increase in online orders over the last year, which comes as no surprise as our customers are often time poor and not in a position to wait at home during the day for their deliveries to arrive,” said Emma Mead, director of e-commerce at Holland & Barrett International. “At the same time, many can’t receive any items at work, but would rather pick up their purchases in a location and at a time that’s convenient for them, e.g. on their way home from the office.

|The partnership with InPost UK is the perfect solution for us, as it makes failed deliveries a thing of the past and increases customer satisfaction.”

Ian Caminsky, CEO at InPost UK, said: “The e-commerce sector is growing rapidly, offering a real opportunity for retailers to grow their sales throughInPost Locker this channel. However, they have to be in a position to offer a delivery service that is not only reliable but also sophisticated, convenient, and easy to use if they want to keep their customers happy. Our new partnership with Holland & Barrett is exciting for us as a business, as it represents our first step into the Health Products industry and we are pleased it is with such a well-respected brand.”
