Finish home construction company SATO has announced that iBoxen parcel lockers have been installed on the grounds of 40 of its apartment buildings.
Located outdoors, the parcel lockers are accessible 24/7/365 for easy parcel sending and collection of Matkahuolto parcels.
The parcel lockers are available for general use, allowing everyone in the neighbourhood to benefit from the infrastructure.
In a press release, SATO notes that the rise in online shopping has been reflected in the number of self-service parcel lockers. The company adds that parcel lockers are popular because they are easy and convenient to use.
“We wish to offer our residents services that make everyday life easier and also enable a car-free lifestyle. The parcel lockers are always open, meaning that you can send or collect parcels when it best suits you. Picking up your parcel from a locker close to home instead of running a separate errand for it makes life just that little bit easier,” says Elina Vaurasalo, Executive Vice President, Housing Business.
The outdoor lockers can be used to both send and pick up parcels round the clock by using the Paketit app of Matkahuolto.
Matkahuolto says it delivers both online orders and other parcels everywhere in Finland to almost 2,300 service points as well as abroad.
