Cdiscount, France’s leading e-commerce retailer, in co-operation with Pickup and Chronopost, is launching an automatic ‘Pickup Station’ service in SNCF train stations, a solution guaranteeing product availability within 24 hours of purchase.
For the launch, 100 automatic pickup stations will be set up in SNCF train stations located in the Paris region, and more than one thousand will eventually be installed across the country.
With this new delivery method, Cdiscount says it is providing its customers with a new, quick (under 24-hour) delivery solution that is easy to access and use. Ten seconds is all it takes to collect a purchase. This service enhances Cdiscount’s existing network of 17,500 pick-up locations in France.
