YEEP! Parcel Lockers Introduced to Southeastern Train Stations by LockerQues

LockerQuest, the masters of parcel locker locations, have joined forces with Amey TPT to deploy YEEP! parcel lockers at 50 Southeastern Train Stations.

YEEP! stands as an extensive residential network of open, unbiased, battery-powered parcel lockers, facilitating the seamless pickup and drop-off of parcels for all carriers and consumers right within their local communities in an eco-conscious and convenient manner.

The YEEP! parcel locker service has already gone live at numerous locations, with a projection of over 400 lockers to be operational this year, including the 50 strategically positioned at Southeastern stations. The parcel locker network is set to expand to 1,000 units by Q2 2024, with even grander aspirations to install 10,000 of them throughout the entire United Kingdom.

YEEP! functions as a high-density, hyper-local parcel delivery network, guided by a meticulously honed data-driven model for location selection. This approach aligns with the ambition to ensure that 90% of the populace is within a mere 250 meters – what they whimsically call “slipper distance” – of a YEEP! locker.

These easy-to-install and maintenance-free battery-powered lockers are accessible to all UK carriers, retailers, and local authorities, offering the convenience of 24/7 parcel drop-offs and pickups while significantly reducing the carbon footprint associated with traditional courier deliveries.

Jonathan White, CEO of LockerQuest, remarks, “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.”

“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 triumphant launch with Southeastern, LockerQuest is already in collaboration with other Amey TPT portfolio managers, seeking additional opportunities within the railway estate.

Noël Shapton, CEO and founding Director at YEEP!, exclaims, “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.”

“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.”

LockerQuest is actively seeking new hosts for YEEP! parcel lockers. If you possess visible, accessible, and secure locations, do not hesitate to reach out by visiting https://lockerquest.com/become-a-host/
