Food and drink e-commerce firm Boroughbox has selected Yodel to handle its home deliveries..

Yodel will use its two-hour delivery window software Xpect, as well as its online tracking software, Xpress, to monitor deliveries.

The new partnership comes as Yodel said it was  recruiting 2,950 roles to fulfil the Christmas peak and ensure its operations run smoothly during the busiest period of the year.

Sam Holden, Chief Commercial Officer at Yodel, said: “This [partnership]more important than ever in the lead up to Christmas as families increasingly order food online to prepare for Christmas. Food boxes have boomed in popularity this year, and we look forward to working closely with BoroughBox into 2021 and beyond.”

Andy Lawson, Chief Executive Officer at BoroughBox, added: “What appealed to us is Yodel’s commitment to continuous improvement, technology investments, and, of course, friendly, reliable service.”
