Parcel Pending employs more than 150 people and has thousands of customers across North America. Revenue in 2018 exceeded USD 30 million.

Lori Torres will remain CEO of Parcel Pending and will lead the Neopost locker initiative in the U.S. As part of the acquisition, Parcel Pending will continue to have their office in Irvine, California.

Neopost CEO, Geoffrey Godet, commented: “Parcel lockers is one of the four selected solutions we want to grow in the future. For Neopost, the acquisition of Parcel Pending is a major step forward in entering the very promising American parcel locker market. We are delighted to welcome Parcel Pending’s passionate team within Neopost.
