UK: Sainsbury's and Homeport find the solution to unattended home delivery
Sainsbury's have signed an agreement with Homeport to trial unattended delivery boxes for its Sainsbury's to You home delivery customers. In a first for a UK supermarket, customers will be able to receive home shopping without having to be at home. Sainsbury's e-commerce director Angela Megson said,"Being able to deliver shopping to customers whilst they are out is a major piece in the home shopping puzzle. People using Homeport will be free of restraints on delivery time which in turn will give our operation many more options with fulfilment. Instead of visiting a neighbourhood four or five times a day in different two hour slots, we can drop a large number of deliveries on one journey and they will be secure for the customers to receive when they return from work."
