bpost to install parcel lockers at 70 more stations
bpost has announced that its partnership with National Railway Company of Belgium (NMBS/SNCB) has been extended and it will roll out parcel lockers at 70 new locations over the next six months.
NMBS/SNCB published a tender process with the aim of rolling out this service to stations and bpost won the contract. bpost parcel lockers have already been installed at 33 Belgian stations and 70 new locations will be added over the next six months. The stations were selected on the basis of various parameters, such as the number of users, the density of the bpost network in the vicinity of the stations and, of course, the needs of customers.
bpost is also constantly expanding its network. The presence of bpost at stations is fully in line with bpost’s mission to increasingly motivate end customers to have their parcels delivered to a pick-up point, the most environmentally friendly option. That’s because picking up a parcel from a parcel locker in a station as part of your commute or other journey cuts the carbon emission associated with delivery by 90%. Stations are very popular locations for passengers, who do not always find it easy to get to another bpost pick-up point. They can pick up their parcels from a parcel locker 24 hours a day.
A recent bpost market study shows that parcel lockers are the fastest growing pick-up option offered by bpost. Exceptionally easy to use and always accessible, parcel lockers are also the most environmentally friendly choice.
