Parcel pick-up locker company InPost Canada is expanding into British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec as it rolls-out its 24/7 automated-parcel locker machines nationwide. The concept, which makes e-commerce shopping and returns more convenient and inexpensive, launched in Canada last year.
In his speech at the World Economic Forum, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau touted Canada as a “hub for technological innovation” and encouraged global corporations to invest their dollars in the country’s growing tech sector. InPost Canada comes with a $36.7m USD backing from the Polish Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego (BGK) specifically for its Canadian rollout. The company is engaging landlords and retailers to partner with as it expands its service across the country.
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 7 seconds to complete, so E-commerce shoppers can have their packages delivered to a locker then pick them up at their convenience. Security cameras monitor the locker units, and e-commerce purchase returns can be coordinated quickly and easily through the same InPost lockers.
InPost’s parcel-locker network is the largest of its kind in the world and growing quickly. The company is targeting high traffic urban locations and is looking to partner with major retailers, landlords, transit companies and property managers, and is offering discounts to potential partners through decisionSMART RetailServices (416.702.9641) and Retail Insider.
