InPost reports delivery lockers usage is up by 60%


InPost, which has a UK-wide network of automated parcel delivery lockers, has seen their usage surge 60% over the past week as consumers look for contact-free options to receive their online orders or send out parcels.

InPost’s lockers are available 24/7 meaning people can use them when they feel it’s likely to be quiet, and as they are self-service there is no need for human interaction therefore helping people maintain social distancing.

The lockers are opened by scanning a QR code on a mobile phone so people can just pick up – or return – items from the lockers which are spread across the UK in more than 850 locations including at a number of major supermarkets like Morrisons as well as rail stations, petrol stations etc. They also work with a arrange of major couriers including the likes ofHermes, DHL Express and DX.
