‘Out -of-home’ delivery specialist InPost, has announced the next phase of its partnership with TFL, which will mean that more than sixty parcel lockers will be introduced across the network.
The rollout will happen over the next three months, following a successful trial at six different locations.
The parcel lockers are primarily situated within TfL’s car parks close to tube and rail stations, and provide the local community and those using public transport a convenient, cleaner and greener way to collect and return parcels as part of their regular daily travel around the capital.
Once the InPost locker network is fully operational across all of the locations, it will reduce last mile deliveries and have the capacity to save 193 tonnes in carbon emissions annually.
Jason Tavaria, CEO at InPost UK said: “This is at a time where the capital is gearing up to gradually and safely reopen. InPost is helping stations across the capital act as hubs serving the local communities that surround them by offering a convenient way to collect deliveries.”
Nigel Pickup, Head of Commercial Property at TfL added: When more people begin to return to the network safely and responsibly in line with guidance, these lockers will offer a convenient way for them to pick up deliveries as part of their everyday journeys and help reduce delivery vehicle trips across London.”
