POC Consign O’ Relais
Second hand at hand…
Delivery between individuals
Mondial Relay, a specialist in parcel delivery to individuals in France and Europe is exploring an intermediate solution: sellers deposit the parcel in a Relay Point® in their neighbourhood or somewhere in between both homes and buyers pick it up when best suits them. Transactions and payments are made on the second-hand shop’s site or through other payment methods, previously agreed between the seller and the buyer. On Mondial Relay’s site, a “local” shipping label at a low price will be available online, in order to designate the recipient. This forfeit price covers the third-party merchant’s compensation for keeping the parcel in his store and acting as a private concierge!
For a delivery specialist, developing a solution without transport seems paradoxical. Yet it is after realising that nearly half a million parcels do not travel more than 15 kilometres between the seller and the buyer that the idea of creating a specific service came about. A distance that both buyer and seller can travel in less time than it takes to pack and ship a package! No need for packaging that is resistant to shipping; a comfortable 2-week availability period to remove your package; an easy and secure transaction thanks to Mondial Relay’s platform, all at a low price and the possibility of using soft mobility for the short distances or doing it while running other errands for the longer distances: enough to encourage to put back in circulation everything accumulated in our garages and cupboards!
