Network Rail has announced the launch of a trial scheme designed to allow passengers to combine online shopping with their daily commute by allowing them to pick up and send parcels from main line stations.

Three so-called parcel ‘shops’ are being trialled for the scheme which will each have its own staff on hand to sign for valuable goods and dispense advice on postage.

The service will be made available to all parcel carriers, shipping firms and retailers to ensure the greatest amount of choice and flexibility for travellers.

A dedicated smartphone app, text and sms service will be used to notify customers when they receive a delivery.

Milton Keynes, Paddington and Woking Stations have been chosen for the first phase of the trial which will be rolled out nationwide over the course of 2014.
