Was sind PUDOs?

A location which acts as a PickUp and DropOff (PUDO) point for orders. Local shops or retail outlets offer parcel pick up and drop off service as part of a wider network of PUDO points, which is facilitated by a trusted member of a fulfillment network. Locker banks, convenience stores, and parcel shops are good examples of PUDO locations.

The rise in home deliveries since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has put increased pressure on stock and delivery capacity. PUDOs free up home delivery slots for those who need it. They enable under-pressure retailers to help customers access online shopping without long waiting periods. Today, many retail outlets are working on creating PUDOs locations like Buy Online Pick Up In Store collection points.

How does PUDO work?

Every PUDO location will have smart parcel lockers. The sender of the parcel deposits the item in a corresponding locker and sends a notification with a PIN code to the customer regarding it. Once the customer receives this notification through SMS or email, he/she opens the locker with a code that they received.

What are the benefits of PUDO?

PUDOs are locations with self-service couriers that provide more flexibility than a traditional courier center. It offers numerous benefits for businesses and customers. They are:

  • By customers picking up the parcel at their convenient time, it minimizes the chances of missed deliveries
  • Enables contactless deliveries for customers
  • Reduces the chances of stolen packages
  • As you deposit parcels in PUDO points, your business cuts down fuel emissions of reaching customer doorsteps
  • Provides control of the parcels to customers
