SwipBox and bpost join forces

SwipBox and bpost join forces

bpost and SwipBox have teamed up to launch a dense parcel locker network of lean parcel lockers that are battery driven and bluetooth enabled.  

bpost is piloting the innovative SwipBox Infinity parcel lockers in the city of Mechelen, in Belgium. The parcel lockers were chosen because they provide a convenient and sustainable first and last mile solution.

This pilot will gather user experiences about the bluetooth enabled SwipBox parcel lockers, define what’s the ideal distance (for an end user) from a parcel locker and assess how lean parcel lockers complement bpost’s manned PUDO network and contribute to less congested cities.

bpost’s green strategy

Catherine De Baets, from bpost comments:”We are very happy to be trialing the SwipBox Infinity concept, as it’s  an obvious supplement to our green logistics strategy, which aims to offer sustainable and convenient last and first mile solutions.

Thus we are looking forward to the collaboration and a greener last mile future.”

SwipBox continues its expansion

Danish SwipBox is the developer behind the app-operated parcel lockers that run on batteries. The lockers are very easy to install as there is no need for an external electricity source or an internet connection.

Jens Rom, CEO of SwipBox, says: “This partnership with bpost shows the strong demand for the SwipBox Infinity solution in the market. We have already rolled out this solution across Scandinavia, and we can now proudly announce the cooperaration with bpost. We are confident that the SwipBox Infinity solution will provide greater convenience for shoppers in Belgium and deliver a new, greener way to pick up and send parcels. “

bpost owns and operates the parcel network in Belgium.
