Highland Parcels Launched

Menzies Distribution have just launched Highland Parcels for residents in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland that face disproportionate delivery charges.  A Citizens Advice Scotland (CAS) report, ‘The Postcode Penalty: Delivering Solutions,’ found that up to a million Scottish consumers face delivery surcharges when they shop online and a majority of affected consumers (81%) think these charges are unfair.  From furniture to clothes and tools to toys, those living in the north and north-east pay at least 30% more for delivery than consumers elsewhere.

The new venture is as simple as three steps – 1. create your Highland Parcels account 2. send your order to their central belt address 3. we’ll deliver your parcel to your local depot. However, it’s not just individual online shoppers that could benefit from Highland Parcels! Businesses that often pay over and above to receive the supplies as their location is considered ‘isolated’ or undeliverable, can take advantage of the new service.

Planit Scotland have been supporting Fraser MacLean, General Manager of Menzies Distribution, with the launch via press releases, a press launch, website proofing, social media and content creation.

Richard Lochhead, Moray MP, has been campaigning unfair delivery surcharges for the region for many years and was delighted to join us for today’s launch. Drew Hendry (Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch & Strathspey MP) also joined us at the launch, alongside Willie Cameron (Director of Business Development for Cobbs), Fiona Houston (MD of Fishbox), STV, the SPP, the Press & Journal and MFR.


Thanks to the Sign Centre for accommodating us with a branded van and to HCVF for working with us to capture the launch on film.

Here is a recap or today’s launch thanks to HCVF!
