Velobrands adds dropshipping for retailers to reduce customer contact

Cycling distributor Velobrands is now offering to drop ship direct to consumers for all orders placed by their retailers.

This service will allow consumers to place orders with their local bike shop and receive their goods to an address of their choosing. Orders placed before 4PM should arrive, wherever possible, for the next working day and customers can choose from DPD Next Day, Royal Mail 24hr Tracked or Royal Mail 48hr Tracked.

The new drop shipping service means that dealers can continue to process sales without needing consumers to visit their store.

“It’s clearly very tough for everyone at the moment,” said Velobrands MD Will Miles. “Hopefully the introduction of this service can help a bit to keep sales ticking over whilst reducing personal contact.”

Velobrands is not the only cycle distributor adapting to the coronavirus lockdown, with ZyroFisher among those also now offering direct to consumer deliveries on behalf of bike shops.
