Shop2Shop by Chronopost: the simplified solution that breaks fast transport rules and lowers prices
Paris, 5 November 2019 – Chronopost is tackling the millennial market by rolling out a brand new C2C offer operating from Pickup parcel shop to Pickup parcel shop, at lower prices.
In a sector that is changing and constantly evolving, Chronopost, the French leader in express delivery, presents Shop2Shop its new C2C delivery service, operating from parcel shop to parcel shop. It thus directly targets the millennial market by offering an eco-citizen, sustainable and cost-effective solution, in line with the expectations of this new generation, which is keen to use more eco-responsible solutions.
A fast-growing market, which potentially represents 30 million additional parcels per year for Chronopost.
As Martin Piechowski, CEO of Chronopost, points out:
“Express transport is a great solution but sometimes it’s unaffordable. For several months now, we have been thinking about developing a dedicated service that is easy to use, fast and cost-effective, but which would benefit from the same advantages as the parcels in our express network. This is now available thanks to Shop2Shop”.
