Vinted Go acquires Homerr
Dutch sustainable parcel deliverer Homerr has been acquired by Vinted Go, the shipping arm of Vinted. The amount involved in the acquisition was not disclosed. For now, Homerr will continue to operate under its own trade name.
Founded in 2016, Homerr uses a network of parcel points in neighborhoods for sustainable deliveries. It is a Dutch parcel delivery company. Consumers in the Benelux can drop off products or have them delivered at these pickup points. The company uses free space in delivery vans already driving around the country, reducing CO2 emissions per package.
‘Vinted Go now has parcel points and lockers in 9 cities in France.’
