NetDespatch Wins Retail Week Supply Chain Award
Shipping software company NetDespatch has won an innovation award for the "Pass My Parcel" service, along with Amazon, Smiths News and Blackbay.
The "Supply Chain Innovation Project of the Year Award" win was announced at last week's Retail Week Supply Chain Awards.
The awards ceremony, which celebrates supply chain achievements within the retail industry, took place at the Hilton Park Lane Hotel London and saw a panel of three judges determine this year's winner.
The Pass My Parcel "Click and Collect" network, was created by Smiths News after just three month's development by NetDespatch and BlackBay, and launched in late 2014. Launch customer Amazon can now offer its customers the option to collect parcels from a nearby newsagent on the same day that they are ordered.
Matthew Robertson, Commercial Director, NetDespatch commented: "We are incredibly proud of this achievement which recognises the great collaborative work of NetDespatch, Blackbay and Smiths News to deliver this service to Amazon. It's an even bigger achievement when you take into account that NetDespatch and Blackbay created the system solution for Pass My Parcel in a period of just 16 weeks. We are all thoroughly delighted to be recognised for this prestigious award."
