LockerQuest, the foremost experts in parcel locker locations, has joined forces with Amey TPT to introduce YEEP! parcel lockers at 50 strategically chosen Southeastern Train Stations.
YEEP! stands as a sophisticated residential network comprising open, agnostic, battery-powered parcel lockers. These lockers facilitate the seamless pickup and drop-off of parcels for all carriers and consumers, right in the heart of their local communities, offering an eco-friendly and convenient solution.
The YEEP! parcel locker service has already gone live at various locations, with an impressive count of over 400 lockers expected to be operational this year, including the 50 stations on the Southeastern route. As part of its expansion strategy, the parcel locker network aims to reach 1,000 lockers by Q2 2024, with ambitious plans to install 10,000 lockers across the entire UK.
Operating as a high-density, hyper-local parcel delivery network, YEEP! relies on a data-driven model that is highly focused. It guides the selection of locations, aiming to ensure that a staggering 90% of the population is within a mere 250 meters, or “slipper distance,” of a YEEP! locker.
These easy-to-install, maintenance-free battery-powered lockers are accessible to all UK carriers, retailers, and local authorities. They offer the convenience of 24/7 parcel drop-offs and pickups, contributing significantly to reducing the carbon footprint associated with traditional courier deliveries.
Jonathan White, the CEO of LockerQuest, expressed his appreciation, saying, “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 triumph with Southeastern, LockerQuest is actively engaged with other Amey TPT portfolio managers to explore additional opportunities within the rail estate.
Noël Shapton, CEO and Founding Director at YEEP!, expressed his excitement, stating, “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.”
