Cleveron launches parcel locker for smaller stores

Estonian parcel locker systems company Cleveron have launched a parcel locker system for smaller stores that can store up to 170 parcels on one square metre of space.

The self-service Cleveron 405 is a response to convenience stores and other smaller retailers that handle carriers’ parcels but whom were struggling to handle the surge in parcel volumes thanks to lacking the storage space.

“Cleveron is known as the partner to big retailers, offering robotic parcel solutions to handle high volumes,” said Mihkel Ilp, Cleveron COO. “After the virus hit, we started getting requests for a machine which would hold the same benefits as our robots but would take a minimal amount of space.”

Ilp continued, “We saw pictures of how the entire store was almost filled with parcels, leaving little room for everyday business. Our team set out to create a solution which would have the same smart storage system and fast parcel handout capability like our other robots, but with the smallest footprint possible.”

There are four sizes of the Cleveron parcel locker, ranging from 1.3 square metres to 1.8 square metres in footprint, with the largest model capable of handling up to 315 parcels. The end customer will pass a code to it through their smartphone and the parcel will be handed over in less than 10 seconds. “Our smallest robot helps to solve the issues the stores are facing due to growing parcel volumes. It also offers an opportunity to expand your business by offering new services or becoming a parcel handover point yourself,” said Ilp.
