Last Mile Experts, together with UPIDO, has completed a major study of pick-up drop-off (PUDO) and automated parcel machine (APM) networks in 27 EU countries and the UK.
Poland is one of the fastest growing markets where the number access points has increased by more than 70% during this time. The countries supporting the most PUDOs are Germany (57,000), France (45,000), the UK (38,000) and Italy (36,000).
As a result of the study, Last Mile Experts estimates that there are more than 336,000 PUDO locations available across the continent and, as an increasingly important part of any out-of-home infrastructure, there are more than 43,000 APM units.
The largest number of machines is available in Poland (11,000), Spain (10,000) and Germany (7,000). Interestingly, the densest out-of-home network is in Finland where most parcels are delivered by this method.
