Automated parcel machine (APM) service provider InPost is to roll out parcel lockers at approximately 300 bp service stations across the UK.
This initiative comes after a trial in which thousands of parcels were processed. Prominent locations include Wandsworth, Glasgow, Ashford and Brentwood. Consumers will be able to collect a delivery or return a parcel whilst filling up with fuel or picking up something for dinner at a forecourt M&S Food store.
Michael Rouse, CEO of InPost International, commented, “People are always looking for ways to inject ease and convenience into their lives, and the introduction of InPost lockers to bp retail sites offers exactly that. With increasingly busy lives, shoppers can incorporate collecting, returning and sending their parcels into their journeys to work and beyond. It’s fantastic to be able to implement a practical and useful out-of-home delivery solution into local communities up and down the country.”
Sonya Adams, vice president of mobility and convenience retail UK at bp, added, “We know how precious time is for our customers and we are always looking for strong, compelling offers to meet their mobility and convenience needs – and make their lives that little bit easier. This trial has shown that customers on the move are looking for delivery solutions and I’m excited to see the rollout of InPost lockers starting across our UK network of great roadside locations.”
