Carrefour partners with La Poste subsidiary Pickup
French supermarket group Carrefour has partnered with Pickup, a subsidiary of La Poste, to launch a new service. Under the name Pickup Drive, customers of Carrefour can collect their online groceries and also pick up or drop off parcels.
The first Pickup Drive has already opened its doors in the 19th arrondissement of Paris last week. Several other Pickup Drives are set to open across major urban areas in France.
Picking up and dropping off parcels
The new service allows Carrefour customers to pick up the orders they purchased at Carrefour.fr or via the Carrefour app. This is possible on the same day that they have placed their orders. Additionally, customers can collect their parcels from any of the over 8,000 ecommerce sites that offer Pickup as one of the delivery methods. And they can also drop off parcels that they want sent between two drop/off-pickup points as well as their online returns.
We are delighted to be forging this partnership.
Elodie Perthuisot from Carrefour says the supermarket group is delighted to be forging this partnership with Pickup. “It will help us speed up rollout of our Pedestrian Drive service across the country, and we’ll be able to draw on Pickup’s expertise in managing ecommerce order pickup services in city centers”, she commented.
Customers can pick up all of their online food
Pickup’s CEO Paul-Ambroise Archambeaud added that they have enjoyed working with Carrefour on launching this drive concept. With the Pickup drive, we are making the lives of our customers easier – they can now pick up all of their online food and non-food purchases – right next to where they live.”
