PostNL installing parcel and letter machines in Almere
PostNL is installing new machines in the city of Almere which feature both parcel lockers and letterboxes. The machines contain a letterbox with two openings, and parcel lockers in various sizes for parcels that need to be collected or returned.
PostNL intends to install 16 of the new machines in Almere by the end of November.
The parcel and letter machine can be used 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. The consumer receives a unique code via SMS or e-mail to open the parcel and letter machine to retrieve or return a parcel.
The first machine was officially unveiled on Friday (14 October).
PostNL has described the installation in Almere as a “test” which it will use to “study whether the machine actually meets the consumer’s needs”.
