PostNord launches “in-door deliveries” service

PostNord launches “in-door deliveries” service

PostNord has teamed up with ASSA ABLOY to launch a new service that will allow on-line shoppers to have their parcels delivered inside their front door. The delivery method is made possible with digital locks and single-use codes. Once the PostNord driver has used the code to open front door and deliver the parcel, the code becomes invalid and the customer receives a delivery notification.

PostNord and ASSA ABLOY are now starting a pilot project along with the e-retailers Jollyroom, Apotea and Komplett that will involve 100 households in Lerum, a town east of Gothenburg, trialing the delivery option.

Johan Hellman, Head of eCommerce at PostNord, commented:  “It should be simple and convenient to shop online. This is why we want to give consumers greater choice and the opportunity to receive their e-commerce items in several different ways. We’re seeing a clear trend and a demand for greater choice on delivery, and we’ll now be able to deliver items inside the front door in a secure way. The recipient doesn’t need to be at home or be available at a particular time, which makes it both simple and convenient. Our ambition is for PostNord to deliver items in the way that best suits the recipient.”
