La Poste evaluating Colissimo Pass pilot

La Poste evaluating Colissimo Pass pilot

Sources at La Poste have informed Post&Parcel that the company is still evaluating the results of the pilot run for its “Colissimo Pass” subscription service.

Initiated back in October, the Colissimo Pass pilot offers online shoppers unlimited parcel deliveries from a selected band of participating retailers for a €9-a-year subscription fee.

Media reports have indicated that La Poste is preparing to give Colissimo Pass an “official launch” on 1 May, and that it will also expand the number of retailers participating in the service from the current dozen to 30 by the summer and 50 by year-end. The reports also indicated that La Poste plans to push up the price to €39.

However, sources at the company told Post&Parcel today that the trial is still ongoing and “the extension of the programme will depend on the success of the pilot”.

A notice about the Colissimo Pass service on La Poste’s website lists the price as “pour 9€ par an (au lieu de 39€)*”, adding: “*Prix découverte, valable du 25/10/2017 au 30/04/2018 inclus”.  This does rather suggest that changes could be afoot in the start of May and if the service is extended the price could go up.
