Iceland Post launches national network of parcel lockers
The Icelandic national postal operator Iceland Post, is set to launch a network of automated parcel machines (APMs) under the ‘Póstbox’ brand to enable the public to receive and send parcels.
The machines will be available in Iceland’s largest cities but also at petrol stations- offering Icelanders from smaller towns the same 24/7 delivery convenience.
The terminals have been supplied and installed by the Integer.pl Group – owner of InPost – a global leader in the supply of automation for e-commerce and the owner of the world’s largest automated parcel machine network.
The latest version of the Integer.pl supplied APM offers customers of Icelandic post even quicker collection with the use of QR codes. Thanks to advanced integration with mobile device applications and CodeWise technology, collection times have fallen by more than half – from 15 to 7 seconds.
Ingimundur Sigurpálsson, CEO of Iceland Post, said: “The parcel lockers are a welcome addition to our distribution channels. They are a proven product and we look forward to a future with a new way for customers to receive their parcels.”
Rafał Brzoska, CEO of InPost and Integer.pl Group, added: “The Integer.pl invented and produced APMs work well on all markets, hence both national and private operators choosing Integer.pl Group as a business partner. I am certain that Pósturinn will quickly benefit from the new Póstbox network, just as Eesti Post or Australia Post did. Growth in Icelandic e-commerce is in double-digit, causing a rapid increase in demand for a convenient delivery method. I’m sure that the new APMs will perfectly fulfill the requirements of Icelanders.”
