LockerQuest Launches YEEP! Parcel Lockers Across Southeastern Train Stations

LockerQuest, the experts in parcel locker locations, has collaborated with Amey TPT to introduce YEEP! parcel lockers at 50 Southeastern Train Stations.

YEEP! stands as an extensive residential network of open, versatile, battery-powered parcel lockers, enabling all carriers and consumers to conveniently send and receive parcels within their local communities in an eco-conscious manner.

The YEEP! parcel locker service is already operational in various locations, with an expected 400 lockers by the end of this year, including the 50 stationed at Southeastern stations. The parcel locker network is set to expand to 1,000 by Q2 2024, with ambitious plans to install 10,000 units throughout the entire UK.

YEEP! functions as a high-density, hyper-local parcel delivery network, employing a precision-focused, data-driven model for selecting locations. Its aim is to ensure that 90% of the population can access a YEEP! locker within a mere 250 meters – an incredibly convenient “slipper distance.”

These user-friendly, maintenance-free, battery-powered lockers are accessible to all UK carriers, retailers, and local authorities. They offer a hassle-free 24/7 parcel drop-off and pickup service, significantly reducing the carbon footprint associated with traditional courier deliveries.

Jonathan White, CEO of LockerQuest, expressed his satisfaction with the partnership with Amey TPT, stating, “Thanks to Amey TPT, we were delighted to facilitate an agreement between YEEP! parcel lockers and Southeastern Trains. We have worked with Amey TPT to identify locations for YEEP! parcel lockers and the stations selected where based on where people live and go.”

He further added, “The programme has been very successful based on the governance that Amey TPT follows. From our initial list of stations that met the criteria of a YEEP! locker location, our surveyors were able to follow a clear set of rules regarding station safety and operational activities resulting in excellent conversion rates for final installation.”

Following the fruitful collaboration with Southeastern, LockerQuest is already in collaboration with other Amey TPT portfolio managers to uncover additional opportunities within the rail estate.

Noël Shapton, CEO and founding Director at YEEP!, expressed his excitement, saying, “I am thrilled to bring our pioneering parcel delivery solution to locations throughout the UK including many across the rail network. We’re going further and faster and have big ambitions to become the largest, most sustainable agnostic parcel locker network in the UK within a very few years, working with LockerQuest really helps to support our growth plans.”

He continued, “The LockerQuest team is very knowledgeable and work closely with the YEEP! team to ensure locations are where people live and go. They know what makes a perfect YEEP! location and have provided some excellent places for our lockers to operate. Being positioned in the heart of many local communities, railway stations are high footfall locations and provide convenient access to parcel lockers for both commuters and people that live close by.”
