Online retailer Amazon has announced a partnership with Transport for London (TfL) to install Amazon Lockers at London Underground station car parks.
Amazon Lockers will be located at two Tube station car parks – Finchley Central and Newbury Park – and customers will be able to have orders delivered to the Lockers from Monday June 30. Amazon said the Lockers are ideal for Londoners who want to place orders online and collect their shopping on their commute, at a time that is convenient for them.
The number of Amazon Locker locations across the UK is now approaching 300. They are positioned in places such as shopping centres, supermarkets, universities and libraries. Amazon customers select a Locker location when they get to the checkout and are then given a unique pick-up code in order to retrieve their items from that Amazon Locker. The vast majority of products directly sold by Amazon.co.uk are available for delivery to an Amazon Locker and Amazon Prime members get one-day delivery to these locations as part of their membership. Customers who aren’t members of Amazon Prime can receive one-day delivery for £1.99 or get free standard delivery on orders over £10.
Amazon.co.uk managing director Christopher North said: “We’re delighted to have teamed up with TfL to bring the convenience of Amazon Lockers to an even greater number of London commuters. Some of our first Lockers in the world were launched in London and they have become the preferred delivery option for many in the capital.”
