Tops Daily partnered with Kerry Express
March 15, 2018 - Tops Daily mini supermarket announced to partner with Kerry Express – Thailand’s leading parcel express company – to provide “nationwide next-day delivery services” for customers with their parcels to send visiting selected branches of the nationwide supermarket chain. Tops Daily said that 47 branches country-wide will be opened for such services in March and be expanded to 70 branches after the pilot run.
This partnership is expected to enhance user experiences of Tops Daily’s as well as Kerry Express’ customers while they enjoy the convenience of sending parcels in their neighbourhood and the good quality delivery services of Kerry Express.
“Tops Daily has recently launched concept services to its branches,” said Ms. Phattaraporn Phenpraphat, Executive Vice President Central Food Retail Company Limited. “’Go Green’, for example, promotes the concept of environmental friendliness, energy saving and reducing plastic usage.” A number of other services are added to Tops Daily, such as co-working space with free Wi-Fi, mobile phone and USB charger, breakfast corner, copy/fax/print services and bill payment with CenPay.
“We found Kerry Express an ideal partner echoing our concepts. Kerry Express has very extensive network in Thailand and is able to provide outstanding delivery services with very competitive prices. With their service points set up in Tops Daily, our customers can easily send their parcels, before or after shopping at our shops.”
Such partnership answers to the market demand that customers, especially the rising number of young entrepreneurs, online sellers or SMEs, are looking for more convenient service points to deliver their parcels – near their places, more parking space, areas to talk to customers. They also look for the best parcel delivery company which can provide reliable next-day nationwide delivery and cash-on-delivery services.
