Instabox to install parcel lockers at Norwegian Coop stores

Swedish parcel locker company Instabox has signed a framework agreement to roll out parcel lockers across Norwegian supermarket chain Coop’s network of stores. Coop is the second largest grocery chain in Norway with more than 1,300 stores.

“This is truly an important step in our further expansion into the Norwegian market. Through this partnership, more Norwegians will have access to the future of shipping,” says David Lundqvist, Chief Commercial Officer at Instabox.

The agreement comes after a successful pilot where six Instabox parcel lockers were placed at Coop stores.

“We are constantly looking at ways to increase our services to our customers and co-owners, where I think Instabox will be a great addition. We’ve concluded a successful pilot project, and we have noticed what a success Instabox has been. We are happy to offer Instabox soon to even more of our customers and co-owners,” says Thomas Stemland, project director at Coop Norway.

Instabox has major Norwegian e-commerce clients including Boozt, Lyko, and the Varner group. Under the agreement with Coop, the two companies plan to install up to 12 new lockers a week.

“Shipping with Instabox is fast, flexible, and environmentally sustainable. We offer something new to the market, and Coop is a perfect partner to further expand our business with. Our ambition is to always have our lockers at locations that have a natural place in people’s everyday life” says David Lundqvist.
