UK independent parcel carrier Yodel and the Scottish firm Menzies Distribution have renewed their partnership for a further five years, with a commitment to delivering more than 1.7m parcels per year to customers in Scotland.
For the past two years, Yodel and Menzies have been working together to reach a significant proportion of the Scottish population. The number of deliveries has grown from 1.67 million per year at the start of the partnership, and the two companies are confident of growing the volume further.
Menzies is the leading neutral consolidator in Scotland, with more than 190 vehicles. Yodel and Menzies offer customers in Scotland a seamless service, with Yodel receiving a parcel from the retailer and sorting it at one of its three hubs, before transferring it to Menzies to fulfil the final mile element of delivery.
Stephen Mooney, Parcels Operations Director at Menzies, said: “We’re very proud to be renewing our partnership with Yodel, allowing us to continue delivering to a potential 5.5 million customers across Scotland. Our expertise lies in delivering across challenging geographies, and our network reaches every postcode in the Highlands and Islands as well as the rest of Scotland.”
Rick Southwood, Director of Operational Services at Yodel, said: “Menzies has been an excellent partner for Yodel so far, thanks to its unrivalled experience in delivery and collection services across the whole of Scotland. Both companies share a passion for putting people first and providing outstanding customer service. Menzies has unrivalled capability in delivering to difficult to reach places, and their growth and investment strategy is also aligned to our brand values, which made it an easy decision for us to renew the partnership. The relationship has gone from strength to strength, and we’re looking forward to seeing it continue to develop in the next few years.”
