InPost partners with Salford City Council to install parcel lockers
If you live in Salford, you’ll soon be able to use InPost parcel lockers to collect and return your parcels after they announced a new partnership with Salford City Council.
The partnership will see a rollout of 40 new parcel lockers in publicly accessible locations across Salford, with the aim of installing 65 lockers in the local area by September 2021. The new network of smart lockers will provide the local community with a quick, easy, and more environmentally friendly way to collect and return online shopping and to send parcels, and will be situated in community hotspots within Salford City Council’s property portfolio – with locations including libraries, leisure centres, car parks and community centres.
“Our partnership with Salford City Council marks another important milestone in our roll-out of lockers across the country, and we are very proud to be working with a leading north west local authority. The lockers will help to support the Council’s sustainability targets by reducing last mile deliveries in and around Salford, as well as make parcel delivery and returns more convenient and accessible for all of the borough’s population.”
– Jason Tavaria, CEO at InPost UK
The installation of the InPost Lockers will be timed fittingly with final lockdown measures lifting, and help reinstate these locations as local community hubs in Salford. And as InPost’s lockers enable 24/7 contact-free online shopping collections and returns, as well as an easy way to send parcels, they will provide more accessible options for key and shift workers in the borough.The new InPost Lockers are set to be installed by July 2021, and will be available for use from August 2021.
All lockers will undergo frequent maintenance and cleaning, which includes cleaning the touch screen, the compartment doors and the sides of the lockers with an antiviral spray to ensure safe usage of the lockers at all times.
