A FedEx Express licensee operating in Israel is set to adopt the “ground-breaking” concept of locker-based parcel delivery from April.
Flying Cargo Express has signed up British firm ByBox to provide its automated self-service parcel locker terminals at Paz fuel stations, universities and in shopping centres.
It will mean retail consumers and engineers will be able to collect Flying Cargo Express deliveries when convenient.
ByBox, which has its lockers installed in more than 1,500 locations in the UK, France, Ireland and the Benelux countries, said its system will send text messages to Flying Cargo Express customers when their items have arrived in a local locker. The parcel will then be accessibly 24 hours a day.
Deliveries will be made as early as 8am, which ByBox suggested would allow engineers to pick up parts to start work earlier in the day.
Flying Cargo Express is aiming to make distribution easier for its customers
For online shoppers in Israel, the service will allow easier collection of purchases, particularly those working during the day.
The partnership with Coventry-based ByBox comes as Flying Cargo Group works to develop its logistics services with the intention of making the distribution process much easier for customers.
Udi Dagan, CEO of Flying Cargo Express, said: “Our partnership with ByBox is a giant leap forward in the goal of modernising delivery and making the process easier and more convenient for our users.
“ByBox lockers are used all over the world and we are excited about bringing them to Israel. Placing the lockers at Paz fuel stations, universities and shopping centers will mean they will be within close proximity of potential customers and they can collect their deliveries with ease. We want our customers to have an additional delivery option and enjoy the convenience of the ByBox locker solution.”
