Yodel renews Menzies partnership

Yodel

Independent parcel carrier Yodel and the Scottish firm Menzies Distribution have renewed their partnership for a further five years, with a commitment to delivering more than 1.7m parcels per year to customers in Scotland.

The two companies have been working together fort the past two years, to reach a significant proportion of the Scottish population. The number of deliveries has grown steadily since the start of the partnership, and the both parties are confident of growing the volume further.

Yodel sorts parcels at one of its three hubs in Scotland before transferring it to Menzies to fulfil the final mile element of delivery.

Rick Southwood, director of Operational Services at Yodel, said: “Menzies has been an excellent partner for Yodel so far, thanks to its unrivalled experience in delivery and collection services across the whole of Scotland. Both companies share a passion for putting people first and providing outstanding customer service.

“Menzies has unrivalled capability in delivering to difficult-to-reach places, and their growth and investment strategy is also aligned to our brand values, which made it an easy decision for us to renew the partnership. The relationship has gone from strength to strength, and we’re looking forward to seeing it continue to develop in the next few years.”

Stephen Mooney, parcels operations director at Menzies, added: “We’re very proud to be renewing our partnership with Yodel, allowing us to continue delivering to a potential 5.5 million customers across Scotland. Our expertise lies in delivering across challenging geographies, and our network reaches every postcode in the Highlands and Islands as well as the rest of Scotland.”

Yodel delivers around 150 million parcels per year on behalf of more than 1,000 clients.
