Canada’s largest smart locker network, Snaile, has contracted Stamp Free to begin a trial of its fully end-to-end label-free technology to provide a convenient, sustainable label-free and cost-saving method of sending parcels and returns.
The trial will see Stamp Free’s technology initially being piloted in multi-residential buildings such as condominiums and apartments across more than 55 Canadian towns and cities in which Snaile currently operates. Phase 1 of the pilot will concentrate on locker-to-locker label-free deliveries for residents of buildings with a Snaile locker system and is planned to launch in Q1 2023. Phase 2 will expand to locker-to-address, returns, and international parcel and mail delivery, and is slated to begin in Q2 2023.
Hugh Craigie Halkett, managing director of Stamp Free, commented, “We are delighted to be working with Snaile on this pilot program. Snaile and Stamp Free are both committed to innovation and providing solutions that meet the demands of time-poor customers who are driven by convenience and service.”
The Stamp Free Digital Postage Solution allows businesses and consumers to use the Stamp Free app or a white-labeled app to send parcels and letters and return consumer goods, without the need for a postage stamp or carrier label. Stamp Free enables a completely end-to-end label-free journey, with no over-labeling required. All that is needed is a smartphone to generate and then validate a code prior to the item being sent; the code can be scanned and tracked by carriers and lockers, just like a traditional label.
