Aldi partners with InPost for locker trial

Aldi is trialling the use of parcel lockers outside a selection of its UK stores. Customers will be able to collect and return online orders from other retailers at select Aldi stores, thanks to the supermarket’s new partnership with parcel locker provider InPost.

There was a time when Aldi was the supermarket no one really understood, or perhaps to be more accurate German based Aldi didn’t understand the UK shopper. That’s now no longer the case and they’re the 5th largest in the UK (after Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, and Morrisons… they’re larger than Coop, Lidl and Waitrose! It’s no surprise that with so many shoppers visiting an Aldi store each week, that they’ve become an ideal place to drop off or collect parcels.

Throughout March, InPost lockers will be available outside 22 Aldi stores across the country, with a full list of locations available below. The trial will conclude after a 12-week period, with the aim to roll it out to more stores if successful.

We are all about making things efficient for our customers, and the installation of InPost lockers will make shopping at Aldi even more convenient.

People can collect or return parcels while they are doing their shopping, with the lockers accessible with a QR code. If the trial is successful, this will hopefully be something available to lots more of our shoppers later this year.

– Richard Thornton, Communications Director, Aldi UK

We’re on a mission to bring unrivalled parcel convenience to shoppers in the UK, and this trial with Aldi does just that.

With over 6,000 parcel lockers in the UK, we offer hassle-free delivery options that easily integrate into shoppers’ daily routines. In this case, Aldi customers can now pick up and drop off their parcels with ease and efficiency while doing the weekly shop. We look forward to seeing the results from the trial and the start of a successful partnership.

– Michael Rouse, CEO, InPost International
