PostNord to pilot Swipbox parcel locker network in Sweden

In autumn PostNord Sweden is to test Swipbox Infinity parcel lockers as part of a pilot in Stockholm. This will mean that the Swipbox Infinity solution will have reached every country in Scandinavia.

Helena Sjöberg, Last Mile Business Developer at PostNord commented: “As the parcel lockers are Bluetooth operated, the parcel lockers’ compartments are opened with PostNord apps on the couriers’ and end users’ phones. We experience huge demand for new last mile solutions and that is why we are happy to start trialling this new concept. Parcel lockers are a good complement to our existing delivery options (PUDOs and home deliveries), and we’re excited to see the feedback from the market.”

The Swipbox, app-operated parcel lockers run on batteries thanks to there being no requirement for a mains source or internet connection.

Allan Kaczmarek, Founder of SwipBox, said: “We are happy to present this new last mile network to PostNord and the Swedish people, and we have no doubts that the intuitive solution will increase the convenience for the shoppers in Sweden. I’m also very proud to announce that with this collaboration, we are now represented in all of Scandinavia with our SwipBox Infinity solution.”

While in some cases the Swipbox parcel lockers are carrier-agnostic, since PostNord is running these, only the postal operator is to use the lockers in Sweden. After the initial pilot there are plans to roll them out across the country.
