Belgium’s bpost has announced plans to extend the Cubee network so there will be more than 450 parcel lockers in the country by the end of next year.
bpost developed the Cubee parcel locker system along with the Dutch company de Buren last year. The system is focused on developing an independent, open network of parcel lockers that will be available for online customers, retailers and other couriers than the Belgian postal operator itself.
In a statement, bpost said that: “All 150 existing bpost parcel lockers have already been converted into Cubee parcel lockers. And Cubee is expanding its network of locations every day.”
Emphasising the network’s open nature, bpost said: “A parcel from any logistics partner can be delivered to a Cubee parcel locker. In addition to bpost, Cubee today reached an agreement with DPD and GLS, among others. The open character of the network is the biggest differentiating factor compared to the former bpost parcel lockers.”
Koen Van Gerven, CEO van bpost, commented: “By moving to an open network we are responding fully to the needs of retailers, e-tailers and online customers. The world of parcels is developing at breakneck speed and our customers need very flexible solutions and an open network that is geared to them.”
