Co-op accelerates parcel locker partnership with InPost

Co-op’s parcel locker partnership with InPost is set to pick-up pace this year with a threefold increase in its parcel lockers located at the convenience retailer’s stores.

InPost Lockers will be available at over 150 Co-op stores by the end of 2024 – providing parcel collection and return services and offering a convenient out of home (OOH) alternative to parcel deliveries being made to home.

Locker use is continuing to grow in popularity, and more than half of UK consumers are now using delivery lockers for online purchases. With Co-op stores located at the heart of local communities, the growth of the InPost partnership will provide added services to meet the community’s needs.

Our focus is to make things easier and more convenient for our member-owners and customers, and with our stores located conveniently in high streets, transport hubs, university campuses and residential developments, InPost Lockers can help residents and time-pressed shoppers in our communities pick up or return parcels at a time that is convenient to them, on their way to or from work or when they pop out to pick up their groceries, quickly, easily and conveniently.

– Chris Conway, ecommerce director, Co-op

We are delighted to announce the acceleration of our partnership with stalwart retailer, Co-op, enhancing our commitment to accessible parcel services. By expanding our network to over 150 Co-op stores during 2024, we’re not just offering convenience but also redefining accessibility. Last year alone, the number of parcels we handled doubled to 46.5million proving that UK consumers love the locker experience. In fact, over half of UK shoppers have used parcel lockers and 62% of the population in London, Birmingham and Manchester live just a seven-minute walk from an InPost Locker. This trend continues to gain momentum and our mission through our new partnership with Co-op is to continue driving this growth and make locker delivery the “go to” choice for the UK consumer.

– Neil Kuschel, UK CEO, InPost
