Allegro takes over X-press Couriers, a courier company that carries out same-day deliveries, as a supplement to fulfillment services and the offer of the parcel machine network – the company said in a press release.
As stated, X-press Couriers is one of Allegro’s logistics partners. The goal of the acquisition is to further develop same-day delivery.
“The local courier service provider will complement the One Fulfillment by Allegro service offer and provide support in the development of its own parcel machines, which will allow even faster deliveries in the largest Polish cities,” Allegro reported.
“Already several million offers on our platform are covered by the same-day delivery option. Our customers are more and more willing to use this service as an alternative to offline shopping. We also noticed that adding it to the offers translates into additional sales for our sellers, ”said Grzegorz Czapski, Business Development Officer at Allegro, quoted in the release.
