London tube stations to get Amazon lockers

Amazon and Transport for London (TfL) have teamed up to offer shoppers the chance to pick up orders from the online retailer at two Tube station car parks.

Customers can have products delivered to Amazon Lockers, at Finchley Central and Newbury Park stations, from Monday 30th June.

Although these are Amazon’s first lockers at Tube stations, the retailer introduced lockers in London in 2011, and partnered with the Co-op in 2012 to offer lockers in some of its stores.

It now has almost 300 lockers in the UK, including those at locations such as universities.
Deliveries to Amazon Lockers have more than doubled in the last year, said the company.
Christopher North, m.d. of Amazon.co.uk Ltd, said: “Some of our first lockers in the world were launched in London and they have become the preferred delivery option for many in the capital.

“We are delighted to have teamed up with TfL to bring the convenience of Amazon Lockers to an even greater number of London commuters.”

The introduction of the lockers is part of TfL’s plan to improve services across its public transport network, which has included the introduction of click and collect services and pop-up shops.

Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: “London Underground's click and collect revolution is going from strength to strength, attracting some of the most recognisable names in retail.

“Amazon is a fantastic addition to a cast of top brands who are reaching out to their customers in new ways and enabling TfL to generate vital revenue for improvements to our transport network.'

Amazon customers select a Locker location when they get to the checkout and are then given a unique pick-up code so they can retrieve their items from that Amazon Locker.
The majority of products directly sold by Amazon.co.uk are available for delivery to an Amazon Locker and Amazon Prime members get One-Day delivery to these locations as part of their membership.
