Amazon Expands Delivery Options And Targets College Students
Post by Sameena Farooq | Feb 22, 2019
The Amazon war against traditional retailers is now moving to college campuses and students.
Amazon has now launched new delivery options to students and allowed them to be a part of their ongoing efforts to raise its share and revenue in the online shopping market since its launch over a year ago.
It has done partnership with local logistics provider, ParcelPoint, that is offering students great option to ship their orders to third-party location like nearby petrol station, pharmacy, giving customers the option to ship their orders to a convenient third-party location, such as a nearby petrol station, pharmacy or newsagent, home address or place of work.
These trends have allowed customers to collect their parcels and drop them off to Amazon for return on weekends.
Craig Fuller, Amazon Australia’s director of supply chain and transportation said, “Choice and convenience are important to Amazon customers”.
“Through our work with the ParcelPoint network across Australia, Amazon customers can now pick up and return their eligible packages when and where they want, at their local store near home or work, and we couldn’t be more excited for the convenience this will bring to our customers.”
The logistics provider ParcelPoint has its location in more than 1300 locations across Australia and now working as a leading online retailer, like The Iconic and Asos.
After being excited with Parcel Point partnership, Chief executive Julian Leach said, “Amazon customers can collect or return their parcels from nearly all of our ParcelPoint locations around Australia, making peoples’ lives just a little bit easier".
In this week, Amazon has also launched its “Off to University” store. The store offers all students essential stationery items for uni students like textbooks, stationery, electronics and backpacks.
