Amazon to launch pick-up service at Repsol stations

Spanish oil giant Repsol has struck a deal with Amazon that will allow people to pick up parcels at petrol stations in Portugal and Spain.

According to the Financial Times, the service will be launched in the next two months and be available at many of Repsol’s Iberian outlets.

The deal is part of “wider efforts by Amazon and other online retailers to provide convenient pick-up locations for parcels that avoid customers having to wait at home for deliveries,” says FT.

The Amazon Locker service is already widely available in the US and at more than 1,300 locations in the UK, including some Jet filling stations operated by the US oil company Phillips 66.

FT adds that Repsol’s deal has “the potential to be among the biggest click and collect partnerships with Amazon in Europe.”

Customers are sent a code by Amazon which opens the locker containing their parcel.
