Quadient launches modular parcel locker system in UK

Postal delivery tech company Quadient has announced the UK launch of a new, compact and modular parcel locker system called Parcel Pending Lite. This is designed to accelerate the roll-out and adoption of automated pickup solutions in the retail and carrier markets across the UK.

“The experience we have built in the past years, collaborating with key players in the retail and carrier markets, has enabled us to conceive and bring this innovation to market, and meet the high expectations of our customers in terms of cost, reliability and serviceability,” said Daniel Malouf, chief solution officer, Parcel Locker Solutions at Quadient. “Parcel Pending Lite by Quadient is the solution that disrupts the parcel delivery and collection landscape as we know it today, bringing the automated parcel pickup experience to retail stores of all sizes, even your favourite small store across the street.”

The idea of the Parcel Pending Lite system is that the retailers can install as many as meet demand and then scale up as and when demand grows. It has also been designed to optimise total cost of ownership with a quick set-up process and low maintenance costs. Japanese carrier Yamato has already taken an interest in the parcel locker system and ordered 3,000 units for Japan.
