Sendle operates with "hub and spoke" providers rather than point-to-point.
It’s more like parcels taking public transport, rather than each one driving in their own car. It’s much more cost-effective and environmentally friendly. And that’s exactly why we do it this way.
How it works
What this ‘hub and spoke’ delivery model looks like in action:
- Parcels are picked up by a driver (who is on their regular route).
- Then they are taken back to the depot (delivery hub).
- The parcels are sorted and loaded to travel between depots overnight (if intercity).
- Then they’re loaded for delivery in the local area during the driver's normal run.
It’s much more efficient for you because you get a driver coming to your door (rather than waiting in line at a post office!) and better for the environment as there are less cars on the road.
