Utrecht, 12 July 2022 – Bol.com will start to collect parcels from sales partners itself. Bol.com has recently founded startup Ampère. With Ampère, bol.com wants to better align its logistics services with customer needs and offer more flexibility and service to its sales partners. In addition, Ampère ensures the fully sustainable collection of packages from sales partners. Ampère has recently started in the Utrecht region and in the coming months the network of sales partners using Ampère will be further expanded.
Parcel collection by Ampere
Ampère has recently started collecting parcels from sales partners to bring them to a collection depot for further distribution. This concerns sales partners who make use of the logistics service ‘Send via bol.com+’, through which bol.com takes care of the shipment of packages for sales partners at attractive rates. With this logistics service, the parcels are collected from the sales partners in the morning. Ampere will now collect these parcels from the sales partners itself. Next, the packages are transferred to Budbee, which delivers them to the customer the same day. Sales partners benefit from all the advantages of “Shipping via bol.com+”, including a fast delivery time and high delivery reliability. Bol.com wants to make optimal use of its logistics capacity.
Besides the collection of packages via Ampère, bol.com will also continue to use other carriers for the collection of packages in order to meet the increasing demand of sales partners.
The vans of Ampère currently largely run on HVO, a renewable and sustainable diesel, made from vegetable oils. In the future, most of Ampère’s vans will run on electricity. Bol.com recently received the Climate Neutral Certification seal of approval. Ampère will start the process for its own certification this year.
Ampère is a startup which originated from bol.com. Ampère aims to bring the logistics services in the Netherlands even closer to the wishes of the market. Ampère provides fully sustainable collection of packages from sales partners and has the ambition to realize a nationwide network in the future.
