But many recipients aren’t home during the day and their packages are simply left in the lobby for pick up, creating concerns about security, lost packages and re-delivery attempts. With the continued growth of shipping volumes, building owners and managers are faced with the challenges of signing for shipments, sorting and storing deliveries, and ensuring they get to the correct recipient, adding increased time and costs to building operations.
Packcity Intelligent Parcel Lockers provide convenient, secure storage for e-commerce deliveries. Visit ProShip booth #511 at Home Delivery World (March 30-31) to see just how simple and easy deliveries can be.
What are parcel lockers?
Packcity Parcel Lockers are an automated electronic “click and collect” system that securely stores packages for easy consumer retrieval. They are safe, reliable and convenient, allowing consumers to pick up packages on their schedule, 24/7. They help shippers to ensure a positive e-commerce experience, while serving as a productivity tool for large mailrooms, residential property managers, universities and retailers.
- Package is delivered and placed into the parcel locker. Recipient receives a notification of delivery by email or SMS.
- Recipient enters a one-time PIN code at the locker station.
- Door opens for package retrieval.
Returning a package is just as easy:
- Recipient places the return label on the package.
- The label is scanned at the locker station.
- Locker door opens and customer places the package inside.
Here are just a few of the benefits of Packcity Intelligent Parcel Lockers:
