iBoxen’s new infrastructure will facilitate the rapid growth in e-commerce in Sweden
iBoxen, a company with the ambition to deploy a nationwide infrastructure of delivery boxes to pick up, return and ship packages, is now being launched.
The new infrastructure will create sustainable conditions for economic growth.
iBoxen is ready to build the independent and national wide infrastructure for the delivery, return and shipping of parcels across Sweden supported by 2 large publicly traded property investment companies – Fastighets AB Balder and SBB Norden AB.
“An open and independent national infrastructure is a natural development step in supporting e-commerce growth alongside protecting our environment. We will make this happen,” says Tim Jörnsen, CEO and co-founder of iBoxen.
iBoxen’s infrastructure of connected delivery boxes is supported by the Qlocx digital platform software and is independent and open to all transport companies. The new infrastructure will enable the last mile distribution of parcels to become more efficient through reduced congestion or time in traffic considering the that the boxes are placed outside and available 24/7/365. According to estimates, emissions per package sent can be reduced by up to 60 percent, if the boxes are used to its full potential by combining electrical delivery trucks and night deliveries in cities to iBoxen.
Tim Jörnsen, founder and CEO of iBoxen says: “Within five years, our goal is to have established the national infrastructure of delivery boxes from the north to the south. In cities, no one should have more than 300 metres from their residence to the nearest box. In sparsely populated areas, the boxes are placed in strategically chosen locations to significantly shorten the distance required to pick up and to return packages understanding that plus 80% of volume in Sweden is collected at service points. Driving convenience for small business owners and individuals. The boxes will be available 24/7/365 and offer a service on par with home delivery. iBoxen’s new infrastructure will facilitate the rapid growth in e-commerce, which increased at staggering numbers during 2020 as a result of the Corona pandemic.”
