Pick up while you fill up

BUSINESSES can use Texaco service stations for picking up and returning packages in a new scheme called RelayStar.

The scheme allows companies to use the filling stations as collection points for goods, taking advantage of extended opening hours, on-site parking, secure storage areas and easy access.

IBM was one of the first companies to sign up to the trial with 105 engineers in north London. The system allows engineers to place orders for parts and have them delivered to a nearby Texaco service station the next day. In return, parts that need to be returned to an IBM warehouse can be dropped off at a Texaco station. There are 935 RelayStar collection points in the UK (although not all are currently active), and they handle 730 packages a day.
