Parcel locker manufacturer InPost Group has signed a five-year partnership agreement with fashion marketplace Vinted to provide its customers with access to 35,000 out-of-home delivery sites across Europe.
The pan-European partnership will vary by market, providing access to InPost lockers in the UK, Poland and Italy, as well as Mondial Relay pickup and drop-off points in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain.
Rafał Brzoska, CEO, InPost, said, “This is our first pan-European delivery partnership, involving all eight markets where we’re present, and we’re confident that this is just the beginning. Our agreement with Vinted proves that InPost has the scale and the skills to be a strategic out-of-home delivery partner for companies operating in markets across Europe, with a particular focus on out-of-home services. We are happy to be part of Vinted’s shipping solution.”
Vytautas Atkočaitis, shipping director at Vinted, said, “As a business focused on giving our members great choices about how to send and receive packages, with a particular focus on PUDO and locker options, we’re pleased to continue our successful partnership with InPost and Mondial Relay in multiple markets in Europe.”
Vinted is the largest online consumer-to-consumer marketplace in Europe dedicated to secondhand fashion, with more than 50 million members in 13 European countries, as well as in the USA and Canada.
In addition to the cost savings and convenience over home delivery, InPost has said that shipping to its automated parcel lockers and other PUDO points can reduce CO2 emissions by as much as two-thirds in cities compared with door-to-door services.
