North American debut for Cleveron’s PackRobot

Bell and Howell introduced Cleveron’s PackRobot intelligent locker system to North America at an held yesterday (23 March) at its headquarters in Durham, North Carolina. As previously reported by Post&Parcel, Cleveron and Bell and Howell announced their partnership to ” jumpstart parcel terminal delivery in North America” in September last year.

In a statement issued today (24 March), Bell and Howell said: “Intelligent lockers are well established in Europe where they are used for convenient consumer parcel delivery and pickup. Due to rising consumer expectations and the dramatic increase in parcel volumes, they are now gaining attention from U.S. business in three primary applications: eCommerce retail for convenient same-day pickup and returns; brick-and-mortar retail for “click-and-collect” or “buy online, pick up in store” (BOPS); and campus package delivery and returns. Bell and Howell and Cleveron see the potential for 15,000 parcel terminals in North America in the next five years.”

Bell and Howell added: “Unlike traditional smart lockers that use a fixed number of pre-set locker sizes, PackRobot measures each parcel’s dimensions and uses a proprietary 3D lift system that dynamically configures a locker slot to optimally secure the parcel.”

Bell and Howell’s CEO Ramesh Ratan commented: “Cleveron terminals are installed at 800 locations across Europe, with over 61,000 lockers delivering 450,000 parcels each month. We anticipate that demand in North America will be tremendous.”
