Our story

It all started with a simple idea: to make shipping and pickup as easy as possible for our customers. Inspired by the need for a convenient alternative to traditional delivery methods, our founders set out to create a solution that streamlines the process and provides unparalleled convenience.

Since then, Penguin Pickup has grown from a small startup to a leading player in the out-of-home delivery space. We've expanded our network of collection points, forged strategic partnerships with top couriers and continuously innovate to meet our customers’ evolving needs.
