Naked Wines is topping up its service offer by providing customers with an additional delivery option through a new partnership with InPost UK. This means that Naked Wines’ 300,000 subscribers will be able to pick up their order at any of the over 1,100 automated lockers across the UK at their convenience.
The InPost parcel lockers are located in secure locations with parking space, including petrol, tube, and train stations as well as Morrisons branches. By signing up to InPost customers can also keep up to date on the whereabouts of their delivery. Once the wine has been delivered to the parcel locker of choice, customers will receive a unique barcode via text or email to ensure that nobody else can get to it. The process of picking up any delivery is fully automated and takes as little as seven seconds.
Eamon Fitzgerald, Naked Wines’ UK Managing Director, said: “Our Angel customers invest in our wines up-front, and deserve to get their wines when it suits them. We’re always looking for ways to make life easier for our customers, and InPost’s national footprint and logistics expertise are the perfect solution.”
Ian Caminsky, CEO at InPost UK, added: “The new partnership with Naked Wines is a very exciting one for us. Until now, we have traditionally partnered with clothing retailers and selected food retailers. To add a successful wine business like Naked Wines to our portfolio is a great step into a new sector. They are a prime example of how popular click and collect has become and the importance of a great customer experience.”
Naked Wines was founded in 2008 and funds independent winemakers to make exclusive wines at preferential prices, which they pass onto customers. Naked Wines currently has 152 winemakers in 14 countries and 301,000 Angel customers worldwide. Sales for the year ended 28 March 2016 were £104.3m.
