InPost deploys 2,000th automated parcel locker in UK
InPost have today announced the deployment of its 2,000th parcel locker unit in the UK, as it further revolutionises the UK ecommerce shopping experience. InPost are also welcoming Jonathan Sheard as Business Development Director, Mathew Munro as Product and Marketing Director and Richard Cooper as Logistics Director.
InPost parcel lockers have been providing consumers and businesses with a contact-free delivery solution throughout the pandemic. It is, however, over the last 6 months that InPost have seen their locker coverage in the UK almost double with 900 lockers being installed just this year. With its accelerating network growth, the business is on track to soon install more locker locations in London, Manchester and Birmingham than there are Post Offices.
InPost offers a quick and easy way to collect or return online shopping parcels, that is available 24/7. InPost’s lockers can also be used to post parcels, thereby catering to sellers using online marketplaces.
Lockers are positioned at convenient locations, such as train stations, supermarkets, and petrol forecourts, meaning users can go to an InPost locker as part of their daily routine. As a result, InPost offers consumers a flexible, convenient, environmentally friendly, and contactless delivery option, that helps them avoid unnecessary queues.
InPost aims to have one of the largest automated parcel networks in the UK, with ambitions for over 10,000 locker units to be in operation by 2024.
“We are incredibly proud to have installed our 2,000th locker in the UK on the back of an explosion in demand by UK consumers, who want the convenience of 24/7, self-service collection or returns of goods via lockers. Shoppers are fed up of waiting in all day for a delivery or queuing up to return an item. Given the strong UK network and landlord relationships InPost has developed, we feel we are in a prime place to take advantage of this.”
