Using blu to send and collect parcels
One of the agonies of online shopping is waiting for your high waisted mom jeans or disruptor sneakers to arrive in a timely manner. Save yourself that misery by taking things into your own hands – know exactly where your parcel is and when you can collect it by using blu.
There are more than 100 of these bluPort parcel lockers scattered across Singapore, from shopping malls in town to those in the heartlands, as well as in neighbourhood minimarts, petrol stations, and convenience stores. Refer to the full list of bluPort locations here.
Using bluPort also allows busy bees to drop off and collect at a time that suits their schedules, especially those working from 9 to 6. It operates round the clock so your parcel is safe and sound, no matter day or night.
But that doesn’t mean you can dilly dally to pick up your parcel. If you do happen to miss the ample collection deadline, you will be required to pay for the redirection of your parcel.
