Nov 1 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The Royal Mail has launched a six month trial of evening deliveries in order to cater to customers who are not at home during the day because of work or school, or various other reasons.

Anyone who resides in the M25 area of London, and the South East will be privy to this trial with goods ordered online from House of Fraser and L’Occitane, a beauty product company. Other retailers are said to be in negotiations with the Royal Mail concerning whether or not they would join the trial.

According to the Royal Mail Director, Mike Brown, “Consumers increasingly want more control over when and where they receive their orders, and Royal Mail is looking to fit the online delivery experience around the shopper, enabling them to select, rather than being told, when their goods will be delivered,” according to the Mirror.

Studies show that fifty-eight percent of people would shop online if their choices of delivery was more flexible. Items will be delivered between 6 and 10 pm.
