Parcel locker tech company InPost has announced a partnership with Salford City Council in Greater Manchester to install 65 new parcel lockers.
By September, the parcel lockers are planned to be installed in public spaces in the city. They will be situated in community hotspots within the Salford City Council property portfolio including leisure centres, community centres, car parks and libraries.
One of the benefits of having them installed to Salford’s community hubs at the end of the national lockdown is that the InPost parcel lockers should help increase footfall at these locations. They will be accessible 24/7 and will make it easier for key workers and shift workers to access their parcels even at unsocial hours.
Jason Tavaria, CEO at InPost UK said, “Our partnership with Salford City Council marks another important milestone in our roll-out of lockers across the country, and we are very proud to be working with a leading north west local authority. The lockers will help to support the Council’s sustainability targets by reducing last mile deliveries in and around Salford, as well as make parcel delivery and returns more convenient and accessible for all of the borough’s population.”
The first 40 lockers are set to be installed in July 2021 and fully operational by August.
