Quadient to roll out parcel lockers in the UK

No primary category set

U.S. based parcel locker provider Quadient have announced new plans to begin rolling out their carrier-agnostic parcel lockers in the UK. The news comes after finding success in the United States and Japan.

Over the coming years, the company aim to have 5,000 lockers installed in various locations across the country offering convenient parcel pickup and drop-off locations and an exceptional shopping experience to customers.

Quadient teams have ensured technical integration with the systems of key carriers in the UK and have secured hundreds of prime locations for locker units to quickly scale. Quadient’s ambition is to establish a dense, large and scalable network to consolidate first and last mile deliveries, especially in urban areas where there is medium to high delivery density. Having readily available open access to a large parcel delivery network alleviates the mounting pressure experienced by carriers and retailers to scale to increasing demand and parcel volumes.

We believe that building and growing a large, dense, and open intelligent locker network with an agnostic approach is the best way forward to address the challenges of large and growing e-commerce markets such as the UK, the third largest global e-commerce market. Our approach is to offer a common infrastructure available to any carrier or retailer for a volume-based fee, ensuring it is financially viable for all parties. Building upon our extensive experience managing large open networks, particularly in Japan, we are confident that customer adoption and usage will increase rapidly as we work with our partners to grow our footprint, enabling us to deliver the service in a profitable and sustainable manner.

– Geoffrey Godet, chief executive officer, Quadient
