Addison Lee launches AL Request click and collect courier service

Addison Lee couriers

Addison Lee has launched AL Request – a new service which allows it to pick up people’s click and collect orders and deliver it to their homes.

AL Request will be available across Addison Lee’s digital channels – app and web – and the functionality allows customers to add their order receipt number to the booking for proof of purchase and collection.

Liam Griffin, CEO of Addison Lee, said: “We know how hard it is for people right now, so we have launched our new AL Request service to bring the everyday to people’s homes.

“With public transport less appealing and the cold weather and dark nights setting in, Addison Lee can provide a safe and reliable option for people who still need to get hold of essential items.”

Immediately after the first Covid-19 lockdown, Addison Lee saw demand for its courier services rise by 30% and the company says this service will help businesses and consumers navigate the second lockdown.

In March, a consortium led by Griffin – a former CEO of Addison Lee Group – and Cheyne Capital’s Strategic Value Credit business completed the buy-out of the private hire company.

It now holds a majority stake in the business - in a deal that sees at least £41 million of new investment flow into the firm.


Fleet News Awards + Commercial Fleet Awards 2021

The Fleet News Awards is moving to a new date for 2021.

Traditionally held in March, next year the awards night moves to June 29 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. It will also for the first time incorporate the Commercial Fleet Awards to create an unparalleled celebration that honours and recognises excellence across every part of the fleet sector.

Stephen Briers, editor-in-chief of Fleet News, said: “With the industry in turmoil due to the coronavirus pandemic, we had a chance to reflect and review our awards proposition for 2021. While going virtual is an option, and one we are very excited about with our Fleet & Mobility Live show in November, we believe that an awards evening is also a networking evening and a chance to meet old friends and make new acquaintances in a relaxed environment.

“For many guests, it’s their industry highlight of the year. That’s why we decided to move the date to give us a better chance of being live at the Grosvenor House.”

Fleet News Awards 2021, incorporating Commercial Fleet Awards, will offer a unique opportunity to bring together the entire fleet sector to celebrate and honour the best people, companies and vehicles.

It is set to become the biggest and most important night in fleet. Further details about awards categories, judges and auditing will be released in January when Fleet News officially launches the Fleet News Awards 2021.
