Pickup extends its partnership with Monoprix in Paris

40 Monoprix shops will offer Pickup lockers for parcel collection

 

Since 2017, Monoprix has provided its urban customers, in some twenty shops mainly located in the Paris region, out of home delivery solutions from Pickup, the leading pickup network in France and a subsidiary of Le Groupe La Poste. By 2022, all 40 of the company's Parisian shops will offer this local service thanks to the widespread deployment of Pickup lockers.

Within the 23 Monoprix shops offering the Pickup service, customers can collect their e-commerce parcels (Colissimo, Chronopost, DPD France) ordered from one of the 10,000 e-commerce sites offering the Pickup delivery solution.

As part of this partnership extension, all Monoprix shops in Paris will feature a locker by the beginning of 2022. The fully automated lockers will enable users to save a considerable amount of time by collecting Chronopost and Colissimo parcels independently when they come into the shop.

 

A partnership designed to simplify the lives of individuals

At a time when e-commerce purchases are on the up, Pickup and Monoprix are offering private individuals the opportunity to share their daily journeys and save time through this local service. The long opening hours of Monoprix shops also make it easy for them to fit this task into their schedule.

 

Prospects for national deployment

Although this partnership is currently focused on Paris, Pickup and Monoprix could, in the medium term, roll out connected lockers in more Monoprix shops in France.

 

"At Pickup, we are proud of this partnership started four years ago with Monoprix and the Casino group. This latest collaboration in the capital further strengthens our ties and our common ambition to offer urban customers the best possible local service to simplify their daily lives.

Olivier Titeux, Director of Development at Pickup
