It's been announced that 74 Post Offices in the North East are offering customers the option of sending packages using Evri from today (Friday, December 1).

For the first time in the Post office’s 360-year history, the new service will allow its customers to choose their parcel carrier, from Evri to Royal Mail, over the counter in branches.

Following the announcement of the landmark partnership with the Post Office last week, Evri has shared the full list of Post Office branches offering Evri’s ParcelShop services.

For the first time, Evri customers will be able to hand a parcel directly to a Post Office team member to enter address details and apply a label, rather than using a self-service device.

David Saenz, chief growth officer at Evri, said: “We’re pleased to give local people more choice and convenience when sending a parcel.

"Whether you’re sending a Christmas gift to a loved one or selling second-hand items online, we’re committed to delivering a high-quality, cost-effective, and reliable service with great quality benefits such as tracking as standard and giving consumers yet another reason to keep using Post Offices, so they remain at the heart of our communities.”
