Sendle, Australia’s 100 per cent carbon neutral courier service, has partnered with HUBBED, parcel collection and drop-off network, to introduce a 24/seven shipping service for Sendle customers at select BP service stations, newsagents and pharmacies around the country.
The move offers another layer of choice for small businesses on when and how they manage their shipping.
The partnership empowers business owners with inflexible schedules to send parcels where and when they want, taking advantage of 24/7 opening hours of service stations. To use the service, Sendle customers simply select “drop off” when booking a parcel delivery, print off their unique label, and drop the parcel off at all participating HUBBED drop off points in Australia, with no payments needed in store whether it’s one parcel sent, or one hundred.
CEO and co-founder of Sendle, James Chin-Moody, said that the initiative introduces a new dimension of shipping to Australian small business and is designed to meet evolving customer expectations around convenience.
“Working with tens of thousands of Australian small businesses every day, we understand that they are incredibly diverse and often lack the resources that bigger businesses have. Increasingly, we are seeing growing demand for flexible and convenient delivery options among time-poor business owners, so they can operate their business around different lifestyle needs — whether they are mumpreneurs, a young professional with a side-hustle, or a full-time eCommerce operator.
“The decision to partner with HUBBED was an easy one. Sendle’s aim is to provide affordable, reliable services to its customers and providing them with access to HUBBED’s network takes convenience and flexibility for Australian small businesses to a whole new level.”
CEO and Founder of HUBBED, David Mclean, regards the partnership as a simple, cost-effective way for local businesses to manage logistics.
“At HUBBED we are focused on improving the experience of our customers, creating great technology and meaningful partnerships. We’re excited about partnering with Sendle to offer Australian businesses another way to deliver their parcels.”
