Today’s headline story: Deutsche Post strikes set to end following Verdi Union pay agreement

InPost has announced that it has successfully deployed its 5,000th parcel locker unit in the UK.

The company adds that its Q3 volumes increased by 227% in the UK compared to the same period in 2021* and that the business now has over 50,000 OOH options across nine major European markets.

Having reached the 5,000 locker mark, InPost writes that there are approximately 290,000 individual locker compartments available for consumers to collect, return and send their parcels across the country.

Moreover, InPost claims that nearly half of residents in London, Birmingham and Manchester live within a seven-minute walk of one of its parcel lockers.

Commenting on the news, Michael Rouse, CEO at InPost International, said:

“We are extremely proud to have installed our 5,000th locker in the UK following a year of continued demand from consumers and retailers alike. In the last 12 months we have seen a huge appetite in the UK for convenient and hassle-free parcel services, and the rate at which we are growing shows that this mindset is here to stay. And at a time when local highstreets are struggling to regain footfall, OOH options such as lockers provide a real and impactful solution to meeting the needs of our communities.”
