Budbee is one of the recent emerging eCommerce courier companies in Europe. Being in existence for less than a decade, they deliver parcels to millions in Belgium, Finland, Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark. They’ve set their motto as keeping the customers as the priority and making online shopping easier for everyone. The primary medium for fulfilling orders is either: delivering a package to your door or using a locker (also called Budbee box) nearby your location. They even handle returns similarly.
Founded in 2016, Budbee has seen immense growth since its debut. Their main headquarters are located in Stockholm, Sweden. Interestingly enough, the firm was initially set to offer grocery bags to customers. Its founder was only a simple graduate back then by the name of Fredrik Hamilton. However, the company progressed technologically and stepped into the world of eCommerce. Within the same year, Budbee raised money with a group of investors and managed to scale themselves with their first automatic sorting machine in 2017.
Since then, Budbee has signed deals with well-known eCommerce brands such as H&M and outreached towards international deliveries while incorporating solar panels into their ‘green terminals.’ As of this day, Budbee has serviced over 40 million customers in certain European countries and has a team of more than 450 workers.
One of the most appealing aspects of Budbee is how their deliveries operate. Budbee uses fossil-free and renewable energy for every parcel. This is the same for all types of shipments, whether they be doorstep delivery or placed in a Budbee box. For returns, the process is pretty much the same. You can either have someone pick up the package at your door or use a Budbee box.
To initiate the rescue, however, you’ll have to book a time slot on the Budbee app. The good news is, Budbee doesn’t require you to print and stick a return (or any) shipping label. There is also a membership program that users can benefit from via the official Budbee app. This allows customers to set their personalized delivery schedules easily and switch between delivery options.
Another way Budbee looks out for the environment is by optimizing its delivery routes and providing other carriers with discounted HVO100 (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil). For tracking orders, Budbee sends out notifications via SMS or in-app updates to let you know the current status of your delivery. For Budbee box orders, you’ll receive an estimated arrival time and notification when the package is ready to receive. Using ClickPost’s API tracking service, you can easily track your Budbee package.
