Parcel locker manufacturer InPost UK has partnered with Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City to install locker units at both shopping centers.
The lockers are located both internally and externally at the two Westfield sites and will be available 24/7 for parcel collection and drop-off.
InPost now has more than 1,000 lockers in London following recent partnerships with the likes of London’s transport network TfL and grocery giant Tesco earlier in the year. The company had previously stated that it aims to have 3,000 lockers installed throughout the UK by the end of 2021.
Alyson Hodkinson, general manager at Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, said, “We’re delighted to welcome the InPost locker service to Westfield Stratford City and Westfield London, offering visitors and employees a convenient way to send and collect parcels, contact-free. Most importantly, the lockers offer a sustainable solution to our customers as they provide the opportunity to save a significant amount of carbon emissions per year.
“Working with partners such as InPost aligns with our ambitions to reduce our carbon emissions by 50% by 2030 and is another step we are taking to encourage responsible consumption and a circular economy. We continue to work toward a greener future and look forward to welcoming and working with more like-minded retailers and brands to drive sustainability across our centers,” Hodkinson added.
Jason Tavaria, CEO of InPost UK, commented, “We’re very proud to have teamed up with Westfield to provide the thousands of people that visit both the Stratford City and London sites every day the most convenient way to collect parcels and make returns. With Christmas just around the corner, we’re keen to make the shopping experience as stress-free as possible, and our quick- and easy-to-use lockers will certainly help with that.”
