Ecommerce shoppers in Sweden can now have their parcels delivered inside their door when they are out, thanks to a new innovation from PostNord and door opening solutions provider ASSA Abloy.
The duo are working on a pilot project with online retailers Jollyroom. Apotea and Komplett in Lerum, east of Gothenburg, that will see 100 households testing out the new delivery option.
As with delivery to car boot, parcels are delivered via a digital lock and enabled thanks to a single-use code that becomes invalid after use, meaning that shoppers don’t need to be at home to receive their parcels,
“It should be simple and convenient to shop online,” said Johan Hellman, head of ecommerce at PostNord. “We’re seeing a clear trend and a demand for greater choice on delivery, and we’ll now be able to deliver items inside the front door in a secure way. The recipient doesn’t need to be at home or be available at a particular time, which makes it both simple and convenient,” he said.
The delivery method is the latest of several options that PostNord has developed.
