More than 3000 Bangkok 7-Eleven stores are offering a courier service and collection point.
The new service, which launched on Monday, promises next-day delivery on parcels or letters dropped off at a participating 7-Eleven store prior to 9pm.
Customers using the service must present their ID then buy an envelope or box to send their goods in, with fees ranging from THB 35 to THB 119 (US$1.05 to $3.58). A flat rate applies across the city, depending on the size of the box or envelope.
Customers can send goods any hour of the day or night and senders can use 7-Eleven stores as collections points, rather than sending to a street or office address.
Called the 24/7 Speed-D express delivery service, it is also available at stores in the neighboring provinces of greater Bangkok, Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani and Samut Prakan.
The service is a joint venture between 7-Eleven’s parent company CP All and delivery company Dynamic Logistics. All deliveries can be tracked by GPS on the Dynamic Logistics website.
As well as a growing range of banking services, two Bangkok 7-Eleven stores recently introduced a trial food and coffee delivery service based on the Line messaging platform.
