How significant is Quadient’s UK parcel locker plan?
Quadient has announced plans to install carrier-agnostic parcel lockers at a “large scale” in the UK. It will install 500 parcel lockers this year, with 5,000 to follow in the coming years. The lockers shall be made available to all UK carriers and retailers “to offer convenient parcel pickup and drop-off locations”.
How significant is this plan from Quadient? Marek Różycki from Last Mile Experts provides his analysis.
Note: since filming this episode, Quadient has confirmed its plan will be done in partnership with DPD. According to Quadient, parcel recipients will be able to select a locker delivery from their DPD delivery notifications or the inflight options on the DPD app.
