LockerQuest, the foremost experts in parcel locker placement, has collaborated with Amey TPT to introduce YEEP! parcel lockers across 50 Southeastern Train Stations.
YEEP! stands as an extensive residential network of universally compatible, battery-operated parcel lockers, facilitating seamless parcel pickups and drop-offs for all carriers and consumers right in the heart of their local communities, in an environmentally conscious and convenient manner.
The YEEP! parcel locker service is already operational at several locations, with projections exceeding 400 lockers for the current year, including the installation of 50 at Southeastern stations. This parcel locker network is poised to expand to 1,000 lockers by Q2 2024, with even grander plans to deploy 10,000 lockers across the entirety of the UK.
YEEP! operates as a densely packed, hyper-local parcel delivery network, guided by a meticulously data-driven model for selecting optimal locations, striving to ensure that 90% of individuals are within a mere 250 meters, a “slipper’s distance,” of a YEEP! locker.
These easy-to-install, maintenance-free, battery-powered lockers are accessible to all UK carriers, retailers, and local authorities, offering convenient 24/7 parcel drop-off and pick-up services, notably reducing the carbon footprint associated with traditional courier deliveries.
Jonathan White, CEO of LockerQuest, comments,
“Thanks to Amey TPT, we were delighted to facilitate an agreement between YEEP! parcel lockers and Southeastern Trains. We have worked with Amey TPT to identify locations for YEEP! parcel lockers and the stations selected where based on where people live and go.”
“The programme has been very successful based on the governance that Amey TPT follows. From our initial list of stations that met the criteria of a YEEP! locker location, our surveyors were able to follow a clear set of rules regarding station safety and operational activities resulting in excellent conversion rates for final installation.”
Following the prosperous partnership with Southeastern, LockerQuest is already collaborating with other portfolio managers at Amey TPT to unearth further opportunities within the rail estate.
Noël Shapton, CEO and founding Director at YEEP!, exclaims, “I am thrilled to bring our pioneering parcel delivery solution to locations throughout the UK including many across the rail network. We’re going further and faster and have big ambitions to become the largest, most sustainable agnostic parcel locker network in the UK within a very few years, working with LockerQuest really helps to support our growth plans.”
“The LockerQuest team is very knowledgeable and work closely with the YEEP! team to ensure locations are where people live and go. They know what makes a perfect YEEP! location and have provided some excellent places for our lockers to operate. Being positioned in the heart of many local communities, railway stations are high footfall locations and provide convenient access to parcel lockers for both commuters and people that live close by.”
