Amazon is launching a network of collection points in Italy and in the UK, as part of the Amazon Hub range of services. 

Called Counter, the new project of the American e-commerce company will offer a service for customers to receive their online orders at physical stores, including service stations. After completing the order on Amazon Italy or UK, customers will receive a unique barcode in addition to the address and opening times of the store.

In Italy the company forged a deal with Assopetroli-Assoenergia, as proudly announced by its President, Andrea Rossetti, on the occasion of the Elective Assembly on 15 May.

The Assopetroli-Assoenergia service stations participating in the Amazon Hub Counter project, supported by Gate Network on the technical side, will have the opportunity to become multi-service centers, responding to a growing customer demand for convenient click-and-collect locations.

Assopetroli has recently celebrated its 70th anniversary in Rome with many of its associated companies (over 500, accounting for 75% of the national market demand for distribution of oil and energy products), and launched its new logo, in line with the existing transformation in the energy sector towards a climate neutral economy.
