InPost sees surge in parcel locker use

UK parcel locker providers InPost has seen the use of its lockers triple in March as compared to February thanks to social distancing measures that drive customers and small businesses use the contact-free service to send parcels.

InPost has launched the Next Day Send services alongside major parcel broker websites that include Parcel2Go, Interparcel and the company’s direct service InPost Direct. The faster service will mean that during this challenging time, InPost can ensure customers can send their parcels to the destination quicker.

InPost continues to expand its nationwide network of lockers and over the next four months intends to increase its presence and deploy 35,000 lockers in 500 new locations across the country.

Jason Tavaria, CEO of InPost, said: “During these unprecedented times, we want to help both personal and business customers to continue to stay connected to their communities. The surge in demand demonstrates how InPost lockers are offering a 24/7, contact-free way for people to send and receive the items they need to, safely and at a time that works for them. Our Next Day Send service now means customers can get their products and packages to their customers or loved ones as quickly as possibly at a time of need.”
