Iceland Post reduces its carbon footprint with the help of parcel locker network
KEBA AG was selected among all bidders due to the lowest TCO (total cost of ownership) that her KePol parcel locker solution offers. Furthermore, KEBA’s vast experience and references in countries with harsh environments such as those located in Northern Europe were determining factors.
The contract scope includes the supply of 30 rugged KePol FS-09 outdoor lockers running the latest version of the KePol Software Suite as well as the required IT infrastructure and service & support.
Pósturinn now can offer an innovative and convenient 24/7 parcel service available throughout the whole year. Customers benefit from the great flexibility to pick up and drop off their parcels whenever they want. The dependence of limiting post office opening hours becomes a thing of the past.
In addition, the modularity and scalability of the KePol system makes it future-proof. When required, it enables Pósturinn to offer additional services such as the integration of the parcel locker network with local web shops and other logistic companies. This turns the system in a truly carrier agnostic parcel network.
Not only in difficult times of fighting the Covid-19 virus and its impact on the people and their social lives, KePol parcel lockers provide best protection against a transmission of viruses. They allow deliveries to be contactless as they are asynchronous. The persons involved have no direct, personal contact. Any risk of infection is practically excluded.
In addition, this type of goods transfer relieves system-critical infrastructure such as postal services, delivery services and logistics companies and their delivery staff, who are generally exposed to an increased risk of infection.
With this sustainable investment, Pósturinn will reduce its carbon footprint and help to preserve the natural beauty of Iceland. Thanks to KePol parcel lockers each delivery attempt is successful, a second one no longer is necessary. This saves time and results in an environmental-friendly reduction of driven kilometers and subsequently in less emissions of greenhouse gases.
Finally, Pósturinn as new reference highlights KEBA’s position as the most sustainable and experienced supplier of parcel locker solutions and as market leader in Europe.
