Leboncoin partners with La Poste to adapt to containment measures. The two groups will soon allow French people to send parcels by Collissimo directly from their own letterboxes. No more need to go to a relay point!
Leboncoin and La Poste have signed a partnership, our colleagues at LSA report. The platform of sale between private individuals will offer its users a delivery service from home by Colissimo.
Concretely, Internet users who sell goods on Leboncoin will now be able to send their packages from their home. This service will be available from the end of May 2020.
Leboncoin: How Does Delivery From Home by Colissimo Work?
If an Internet user opts for this method of delivery, he will be asked to generate a Colissimo shipping label directly from the mobile application or the site.
Leboncoin sellers therefore no longer need to travel to a relay point to ship the goods sold.
As a result of the containment measures against coronavirus, many relay points are now closed.
Since the introduction of the containment measures, the letterbox service has become increasingly popular among Swiss Post users.
“The service has demonstrated its value in this health crisis by tripling its volumes since the beginning of March” says Philippe Dorge, General Manager of the Mail-Courier-Colis Services branch of La Poste Group.
Initially, this service will be reserved for items weighing up to 1 kg. La Poste assures that deliveries weighing up to 5 kg will soon be accepted.
In the course of this year, the service will then be opened up to shipments weighing up to 30 kg.
To complete its offer, La Poste is also preparing to launch a service for sending small goods using Tracking Mail.
“This partnership marks the union of two French brands, from the private and public sectors, both recognized for their efficiency and both bridging the physical and digital worlds. At a time when the crisis we are going through is forcing us all to rethink our modes of consumption, our uses, I am more than ever convinced of the relevance of our collaboration” explains Antoine Jouteau, CEO of Leboncoin.
