Parcel Pick-Up Lockers Look to Take Canada by Storm

Retail industry news delivered directly to you. Subscribe to Retail-Insider.

InPost is rolling-out its 24/7 automated-parcel locker machines throughout Canada in an effort to make e-commerce shopping and returns more convenient. The concept launched in Canada earlier this year, and it expects to soon have locations near most Canadians. InPost is seeking landlords and retailers to partner as it expands into Canada. 

The service provides e-commerce shoppers the option to ship online purchases directly to one of InPost’s convenient pick-up locations. Lockers are accessible 24/7 and the self-serve pick-up process takes under 10 seconds to complete. InPost’s parcel-locker network is the largest of its kind in the world, and it continues to grow quickly. E-commerce shoppers can have their packages delivered to InPost, with the convenience of picking up the package when desired. Security cameras guard the locker units, and e-commerce purchase returns can be coordinated quickly and easily through the same InPost lockers.
