Online store Amazon’s self-service delivery lockers have arrived at a second Suffolk location.

The 24-hour pick-up points were first unveiled in Haverhill – but more lockers have since appeared at a filling station in Framlingham.

The online shopping giant announced a deal with Jet petrol stations this summer – and Potters filling station, in Station Road, Framlingham, is one of the first to receive an Amazon locker.

There are more than 300 Amazon lockers nationwide – in locations ranging from convenience stores and shopping centres, to train stations and airports.

Amazon lockers will be installed in more than 50 Jet petrol station locations across the UK. The first locations will also include Doncaster, Cleveland, Tyne and Wear, Middlesex and Glasgow.

Stuart Cufflin, retail services manager at Jet, said: “Jet petrol stations are ideal locations for an Amazon Locker, providing a convenient way for people to pick up their Amazon parcels while on the move.

“Jet petrol stations are spread across the UK and serve local communities as well as people who travel to and from work by car.”

Amazon customers can select a locker location when they get to the checkout. They are given a unique pick-up code in order to retrieve their items from that locker at a time convenient to them.
