Moscow, 13 September 2021 – 5Post, an Х5 Group subsidiary created to develop last mile delivery services for online stores and marketplaces, has launched pick-up points at Perekrestok supermarkets.
Customers will now be able to receive online orders in more than 70 new locations by visiting a nearby Perekrestok supermarket. As of September, 5Post was already operating 41 parcel lockers in Perekrestok supermarkets in Moscow and the Moscow region, and from October it will start delivering orders to the supermarket chain’s checkout lanes as well. By the end of 2021, customers will have access to more than 600 new pick-up points at Perekrestok supermarkets in Moscow and the Moscow region, as well as St Petersburg and the Leningrad region.
Working with Perekrestok will enable 5Post to expand its network of convenient delivery points while helping its online partners cover a wider geography and access higher-quality locations.
"X5 Group’s unique logistics infrastructure and business synergies enabled 5Post to integrate into the Perekrestok supermarket chain successfully. Delivery to supermarkets will be based on X5 Group’s shared logistics, ensuring the quality and speed of our deliveries," commented Vitaly Dyrdasov, Managing Director of 5Post. "In cities with populations over one million, customers are used to high-quality service, so they expect a lot from their delivery. By working jointly with Perekrestok, we want to make parcel collection as convenient and comfortable as possible: even the most discerning customers will appreciate the opportunity to shop and pick up orders in one spot."
"With their proximity to residential buildings and offices, parcel lockers at Perekrestoks make for a great place to pick up online orders, representing a union of offline and online commerce. Customers can do their regular shopping and pick up orders in one place, which is very convenient and helps save precious time in a big city where life is so fast-paced," commented Tatiana Stepanova, Brand and Long-Term Loyalty Director at Perekrestok.
