Nightline invests 5m euros in parcel motels

Nightline has invested five million euros in its “parcel motel” network of self-service parcel terminals accross Ireland.

It expects that 50 jobs will be created as a result of the expenditure.

Chief executive John Tuohy, said: “We have conducted extensive research which illustrates the degree to which consumers are not just being selective about what they buy but how they choose to receive it.

“Being able to offer greater flexibility to shoppers and the retailers which serve them is integral to those wishing to capitalise the popularity of internet retail.”
The network currently has twenty units in and around Dublin, and that number will rise to 100 by the end of the year.

The terminals, which each contain 80 individual storage lockers, have been developed in partnership with InPost, the Polish firm behind the growing popularity of the locker box concept across Europe.
