Pickup, La Poste’s parcel shop network, is adding to its delivery solutions by offering to install connected parcel boxes in private houses and apartment buildings. These boxes will supplement conventional letterboxes and, La Poste says, will enable private individuals to receive their parcels 24/7, regardless of the delivery operator.
Pilot sites are already in operation, with a full launch planned before the summer. The parcel boxes will be offered to residents who live in private houses and new or old apartment buildings, in urban, suburban and rural areas.
The post says that numerous avenues are being explored to make the parcel boxes compatible with every home environment and to enable them to be used to offer additional services (beyond picking up parcels), notably the services provided by Groupe La Poste.
